Subject[RFC BUG?] dereference PAGE_OFFSET address (rc7-mm2)
Hi.

I don't know why, but when I'm dereferencing PAGE_OFFSET(0xC0000000 on
x86) address from user space on rc7-mm2 I don't receive SIGSEGV signal
and there is no any core dump.
btw: on poor rc-7 all is ok.
test_code:
---
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <errno.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/wait.h>
#include <sys/time.h>
#include <sys/resource.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#define PAGE_OFFSET 0xC0000000
static void _error(const char *msg)
{
int errcode = errno;
fprintf(stderr, "ERROR:\n--> %s [%s]\n", msg, strerror(errcode));
exit(EXIT_FAILURE);
}
int main(void)
{
int pid;
struct rlimit rl;
int status;
printf("Trying to cause ELF core dump...\n");

rl.rlim_cur = rl.rlim_max = 0x10000000;
if(setrlimit(RLIMIT_CORE, &rl) < 0)
_error("setrlim error!");
if((pid = fork()) < 0)
_error("fork error!");
else if(pid == 0) {
*((long*) PAGE_OFFSET ) = 0; /* trying to dereference kernel start address */
_exit(EXIT_SUCCESS);
}
if(waitpid(pid, &status, 0) < 0)
_error("waitpid error!");
if(WCOREDUMP(status))
printf("All is ok. We receive SIGSEGV and core dump has occured.\n");
else
printf("All is bad. We don't receive SIGSEGV and core dump hasn't
occured. (WHY?!)\n"); /* here I just get SIGCHLD, this means that
child process have made it's work success... */
exit(EXIT_SUCCESS);
}
