    SubjectRe: "elf core dump: fix get_user use" breaks mips compilation
    Date
    That is either a compiler problem or a problem with how the asm magic used
    inside get_user() informs the compiler. The dynamics of the code are not
    actually much different than before the change.

    I imagine this would work around it:

    --- a/fs/binfmt_elf.c
    +++ b/fs/binfmt_elf.c
    @@ -1211,7 +1211,7 @@ static unsigned long vma_dump_size(struc
    if (FILTER(ELF_HEADERS) &&
    vma->vm_pgoff == 0 && (vma->vm_flags & VM_READ)) {
    u32 __user *header = (u32 __user *) vma->vm_start;
    - u32 word;
    + u32 word = 0;
    mm_segment_t fs = get_fs();
    /*
    * Doing it this way gets the constant folded by GCC.
