[PATCH 4.19 001/152] ARM: 8834/1: Fix: kprobes: optimized kprobes illegal instruction

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Feb 25 2019 - 16:19:58 EST

4.19-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Mathieu Desnoyers <mathieu.desnoyers@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 0ac569bf6a7983c0c5747d6df8db9dc05bc92b6c upstream.

commit e46daee53bb5 ("ARM: 8806/1: kprobes: Fix false positive with
FORTIFY_SOURCE") introduced a regression in optimized kprobes. It
triggers "invalid instruction" oopses when using kprobes instrumentation
through lttng and perf. This commit was introduced in kernel v4.20, and
has been backported to stable kernels 4.19 and 4.14.

This crash was also reported by Hongzhi Song on the redhat bugzilla
where the patch was originally introduced.
