Of course! Like ttt_post_xol_op() in the next patch does, can't understand
how I forgot.

Thanks a lot! Please see v3 below.

I also updated the changelog. Please do not ask me to cleanup the games
with ->sp now. I'll try to do this later when we finish the bug fixes.
The current code should be unified with the code we will add. And I think
that adjust_ret_address() should die. What we need is uprobe_push(), there
is no need for copy_from_user() afaics. The value we need to push is
utask->vaddr + correction-calculated-at-analyze-time.

Subject: [PATCH v3 9/9] uprobes/x86: Teach arch_uprobe_post_xol() to restart if possible

SIGILL after the failed arch_uprobe_post_xol() should only be used as
a last resort, we should try to restart the probed insn if possible.

Currently only adjust_ret_addr() can fail, and this can only happen if
another thread unmapped our stack after we executed "call" out-of-line.
Most probably the application if buggy, but even in this case it can
have a handler for SIGSEGV/etc. And in theory it can be even correct
and do something non-trivial with its memory.

Of course we can't restart unconditionally, so arch_uprobe_post_xol()
does this only if ->post_xol() returns -ERESTART even if currently this
is the only possible error.

default_post_xol_op(UPROBE_FIX_CALL) can always restart, but as Jim
pointed out it should not forget to pop off the return address pushed
by this insn executed out-of-line.

Note: this is not "perfect", we do not want the extra handler_chain()
after restart, but I think this is the best solution we can realistically
do without too much uglifications.

TODO: This adds yet another is_ia32_task() check, and the next patches
will add more. I will try cleanup this later, after we fix the pending
problems. And to remind, it seems that adjust_ret_addr() should die.
