    Subject[PATCH] x86-64: adjust double fault handling
    Since a double fault always implies that kernel data structures are
    corrupt, this fault should neither be handed to user mode handling,
    nor should the handler allow resuming the faulting code stream (since
    architecturally this isn't a fault, but an abort).

    Note that this slightly depends on the previously submitted patch
    adjusting the prototype of notify_die() (a compiler warning will
    result
    without that other patch).

    From: Jan Beulich <jbeulich@novell.com>

    (actual patch attached)

    [unhandled content-type:application/octet-stream]
