SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 x86 1/2] fix page faults by nmiaction in nmi if kmemcheck is enabled
From
Date
This patch tries to fix the problem of page fault exception caused by
accessing nmiaction structure in nmi if kmemcheck is enabled.

If kmemcheck is enabled, the memory allocated through slab are in pages
that are marked non-present, so that some checks could be done in the
page fault handling code ( e.g. whether the memory is read before
written to ).
As nmiaction is allocated in this way, so it resides in a non-present
page. Then there is a page fault while the nmi code accessing the
nmiaction structure, which would then cause a warning by
WARN_ON_ONCE(in_nmi()) in kmemcheck_fault(), called by do_page_fault().

v2: as Peter suggested, changed the nmiaction to use static storage.

v3: as Peter suggested, use macro to shorten the codes. Also keep the
original usage of register_nmi_handler, so users of this call doesn't
need change.
