I suppose this is a copy-paste typo and was supposed to be "divide
error", right?
Otherwise it changes how kernel oopses look like and breaks syzkaller
crash parsing, and probably of every other kernel testing system that
looks for kernel crashes.

syzkaller now says just the following for divide errors, without
attribution to function/file/maintainers:

kernel panic: Fatal exception (3)
FS: 0000000000000000(0000) GS:ffff8880ae500000(0000) knlGS:0000000000000000

Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt
Kernel Offset: disabled
Rebooting in 86400 seconds..

I will fix it up in syzkaller. It is now required anyway since this
new crash mode is in git history, so needed for bisection and testing
of older releases.

It is not the first time kernel crash output changes
intentionally/unintentionally breaking kernel testing.
But I wonder if LKDTM can be turned into actual executable tests that
produce pass/fail and fix crash output for different oopses?
Marco, you implemented some "output tests" for KCSAN. Can that be
extended to other crash types? With some KUnit help? However, I am not
sure about hard panics, they may not play well with unit-testing...
