I got similiar warnings on parisc.
This patch on top of yours fixed those:

I did tried your testcases too.

"echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches" gave correct output:
printk#1 schedule_timeout+0x0/0x4a8
printk#2 schedule_timeout+0x0/0x4a8
printk#3 proc_sys_call_handler+0x120/0x180
printk#4 proc_sys_call_handler+0x120/0x180
printk#5 proc_sys_call_handler+0x120/0x180
printk#6 proc_sys_call_handler+0x120/0x180
and here is "modprobe zram":
printk#7 __UNIQUE_ID_vermagic8+0xb9a4/0xbd04 [zram]
printk#8 __UNIQUE_ID_vermagic8+0xb9a4/0xbd04 [zram]

printk#14 zram_init+0x22c/0x2a0 [zram]
printk#15 zram_init+0x22c/0x2a0 [zram]
printk#16 zram_init+0x22c/0x2a0 [zram]

I wonder why printk#7 and printk#8 don't show "zram_init"...


Regarding your patches:

In arch/parisc/kernel/process.c:
+void *dereference_kernel_function_descriptor(void *ptr)
+{
+ if (ptr < (void *)__start_opd || (void *)__end_opd < ptr)
This needs to be (__end_opd is outside):
+ if (ptr < (void *)__start_opd || (void *)__end_opd <= ptr)
The same is true for the checks in the other arches.


I'd suggest to move the various
extern char __start_opd[], __end_opd[];
out of arch/<arch>/include/asm/sections.h and into <asm-generic/sections.h>


I'll continue to test.

Helge
