SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/9] ARM: traps: use get_kernel_nofault instead of set_fs()

Fixed.

I had looked at

if (!user_mode(regs) || in_interrupt()) {
dump_mem(KERN_EMERG, "Stack: ", regs->ARM_sp,
THREAD_SIZE + (unsigned
long)task_stack_page(tsk), kernel_mode);

which told me that there should be at least some code path ending up in
__die() that has in_interrupt() set but comes from user mode.

In this case, the memory to print would be a user pointer and cannot be
accessed by get_kernel_nofault() (but could be accessed with
"set_fs(KERNEL_DS); __get_user()").

I looked through the history now and the only code path I could
find that would arrive here this way is from bad_mode(), indicating
that there is probably a hardware bug or the contents of *regs are
corrupted.

Russell might have a better explanation for this, but I would assume
now that you are right in that we don't ever need to care about
dumping user space addresses here.

I think your version was broken for the in-kernel thumb version
because get_kernel_nofault does not widen the result
from 16 to 32 bits. I tried fixing this in your version, but the
result ended up more complex than my version here, so I
decided to keep what I had.
