Subject[PATCH 1/2] powerpc/irq: don't use current_stack_pointer() in check_stack_overflow()
Date
current_stack_pointer() doesn't return the stack pointer, but the
caller's stack frame. See commit bfe9a2cfe91a ("powerpc: Reimplement
__get_SP() as a function not a define") and commit acf620ecf56c
("powerpc: Rename __get_SP() to current_stack_pointer()") for details.

The purpose of check_stack_overflow() is to verify that the stack has
not overflowed.

To really know whether the stack pointer is still within boundaries,
the check must be done directly on the value of r1.
