SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 0/6] implement KASLR for powerpc/fsl_booke/64

Hi Jason,

Are you making any attempt to hide kernel address leaks in this series?
I've just been looking at the stackdump code just now, and it directly
prints link registers and stack pointers, which is probably enough to
determine the kernel base address:

SPs: LRs: %pS pointer
[ 0.424506] [c0000000de403970] [c000000001fc0458] dump_stack+0xfc/0x154 (unreliable)
[ 0.424593] [c0000000de4039c0] [c000000000267eec] panic+0x258/0x5ac
[ 0.424659] [c0000000de403a60] [c0000000024d7a00] mount_block_root+0x634/0x7c0
[ 0.424734] [c0000000de403be0] [c0000000024d8100] prepare_namespace+0x1ec/0x23c
[ 0.424811] [c0000000de403c60] [c0000000024d7010] kernel_init_freeable+0x804/0x880

git grep \\\"REG\\\" arch/powerpc shows a few other uses like this, all
in process.c or in xmon.

Maybe replacing the REG format string in KASLR mode would be sufficient?

Regards,
Daniel
