[UPDATED PATCH] Fix check for valid stack pointer during backtrace

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


The newly added check for valid stack pointer address breaks at least for
64bit kernels.  Use __get_user() for accessing stack content to avoid crashes,
when doing the backtrace.
