Subject[PATCH 5.4 223/320] parisc: Avoid calling faulthandler_disabled() twice
Date
From: John David Anglin <dave.anglin@bell.net>

[ Upstream commit 9e9d4b460f23bab61672eae397417d03917d116c ]

In handle_interruption(), we call faulthandler_disabled() to check whether the
fault handler is not disabled. If the fault handler is disabled, we immediately
call do_page_fault(). It then calls faulthandler_disabled(). If disabled,
do_page_fault() attempts to fixup the exception by jumping to no_context:

no_context:

if (!user_mode(regs) && fixup_exception(regs)) {
return;
}

parisc_terminate("Bad Address (null pointer deref?)", regs, code, address);

Apart from the error messages, the two blocks of code perform the same
function.

We can avoid two calls to faulthandler_disabled() by a simple revision
to the code in handle_interruption().

Note: I didn't try to fix the formatting of this code block.
