[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 052/130] MIPS: do_mcheck: Fix kernel code dump with EVA

From: Luis Henriques
Date: Fri Sep 04 2015 - 09:46:27 EST

3.16.7-ckt17 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: James Hogan <james.hogan@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 55c723e181ccec30fb5c672397fe69ec35967d97 upstream.

If a machine check exception is raised in kernel mode, user context,
with EVA enabled, then the do_mcheck handler will attempt to read the
code around the EPC using EVA load instructions, i.e. as if the reads
were from user mode. This will either read random user data if the
process has anything mapped at the same address, or it will cause an
exception which is handled by __get_user, resulting in this output:

Code: (Bad address in epc)

Fix by setting the current user access mode to kernel if the saved
register context indicates the exception was taken in kernel mode. This
causes __get_user to use normal loads to read the kernel code.
