Subject[PATCH 4.14 64/89] scripts/gdb/linux/tasks.py: fix get_thread_info
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Xi Kangjie <imxikangjie@gmail.com>

commit 883d50f56d263f70fd73c0d96b09eb36c34e9305 upstream.

Since kernel 4.9, the thread_info has been moved into task_struct, no
longer locates at the bottom of kernel stack.

See commits c65eacbe290b ("sched/core: Allow putting thread_info into
task_struct") and 15f4eae70d36 ("x86: Move thread_info into
task_struct").

Before fix:
(gdb) set $current = $lx_current()
(gdb) p $lx_thread_info($current)
$1 = {flags = 1470918301}
(gdb) p $current.thread_info
$2 = {flags = 2147483648}

After fix:
(gdb) p $lx_thread_info($current)
$1 = {flags = 2147483648}
(gdb) p $current.thread_info
$2 = {flags = 2147483648}
