[PATCH 4.19 10/47] perf/core: Fix perf_sample_regs_user() mm check

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Wed Jul 17 2019 - 23:24:16 EST

[ Upstream commit 085ebfe937d7a7a5df1729f35a12d6d655fea68c ]

perf_sample_regs_user() uses 'current->mm' to test for the presence of
userspace, but this is insufficient, consider use_mm().

A better test is: '!(current->flags & PF_KTHREAD)', exec() clears
PF_KTHREAD after it sets the new ->mm but before it drops to userspace
for the first time.

Possibly obsoletes: bf05fc25f268 ("powerpc/perf: Fix oops when kthread execs user process")
