Subject[PATCH 4.14 13/74] x86/vsyscall/64: Warn and fail vsyscall emulation in NATIVE mode
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Andy Lutomirski <luto@kernel.org>

commit 4831b779403a836158917d59a7ca880483c67378 upstream.

If something goes wrong with pagetable setup, vsyscall=native will
accidentally fall back to emulation. Make it warn and fail so that we
notice.
