Subject[2.6.8] OOPS and SIGSEGV on altivec instruction on PowerPC 7540.
Date
Hi,

simple runtime altivec detection from userspace causes an oops
on the `vand` instruction. kernel was built *without* CONFIG_ALTIVEC.
i think kernel should return a SIGILL instead of an oops ;-)

Oops: kernel access of bad area, sig: 11 [#65]
