Subject[PATCH] x86/MCE: Cast rIP to respective width before printing
From: Borislav Petkov <>

7b6061627eb8 ("x86: do not use print_symbol()") got rid of
print_symbol() uses in favor of passing a %pS format specifier to
printk() in order to print "symbolic direct pointers with offset".

We use this to print the RIP as part of the MCE record. And %pS requires
a void *.

However, mce.ip is u64 and casting it to a void * on 32-bit rightfully

arch/x86/kernel/cpu/mcheck/mce.c:237:21: warning: cast to pointer from integer \
of different size [-Wint-to-pointer-cast]
pr_cont("{%pS}", (void *)m->ip);

about the size mismatch.

So cast the RIP to the machine-specific unsigned long address width
