Subject[patch 05/29] oProfile: oops when profile_pc() returns ~0LU

2.6.23-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Philippe Elie <phil.el@wanadoo.fr>

patch df9d177aa28d50e64bae6fbd6b263833079e3571 in mainline.

Instruction pointer returned by profile_pc() can be a random value. This
break the assumption than we can safely set struct op_sample.eip field to a
magic value to signal to the per-cpu buffer reader side special event like
task switch ending up in a segfault in get_task_mm() when profile_pc()
return ~0UL. Fixed by sanitizing the sampled eip and reject/log invalid
eip.

Problem reported by Sami Farin, patch tested by him.
