Subject[PATCH v4 0/6] powerpc: Modernize unhandled signals message
Hi, everyone.

This series was inspired by the need to modernize and display more
informative messages about unhandled signals.

The "unhandled signal NN" is not very informative. We thought it would
be helpful adding a human-readable message describing what the signal
number means, printing the VMA address, and dumping the instructions.

Before this series:

pandafault32[4724]: unhandled signal 11 at 100005e4 nip 10000444 lr 0fe31ef4 code 2

pandafault64[4725]: unhandled signal 11 at 0000000010000718 nip 0000000010000574 lr 00007fff7faa7a6c code 2

After this series:

pandafault32[4753]: segfault (11) at 100005e4 nip 10000444 lr fe31ef4 code 2 in pandafault32[10000000+10000]
pandafault32[4753]: code: 4bffff3c 60000000 60420000 4bffff30 9421ffd0 93e1002c 7c3f0b78 3d201000
pandafault32[4753]: code: 392905e4 913f0008 813f0008 39400048 <99490000> 39200000 7d234b78 397f0030

pandafault64[4754]: segfault (11) at 10000718 nip 10000574 lr 7fffb0007a6c code 2 in pandafault64[10000000+10000]
pandafault64[4754]: code: e8010010 7c0803a6 4bfffef4 4bfffef0 fbe1fff8 f821ffb1 7c3f0b78 3d22fffe
pandafault64[4754]: code: 39298818 f93f0030 e93f0030 39400048 <99490000> 39200000 7d234b78 383f0050

Link to v3:


- Added new show_user_instructions() based on the existing
- Updated commit messages
- Replaced signals names table with a tiny function that returns a
literal string for each signal number


Murilo Opsfelder Araujo (6):
powerpc/traps: Print unhandled signals in a separate function
powerpc/traps: Use an explicit ratelimit state for show_signal_msg()
powerpc/traps: Use %lx format in show_signal_msg()
powerpc/traps: Print VMA for unhandled signals
powerpc: Add show_user_instructions()
powerpc/traps: Show instructions on exceptions
