Subject[PATCH 3.16 078/133] ARC: Re-enable MMU upon Machine Check exception
3.16.51-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jose Abreu <Jose.Abreu@synopsys.com>

commit 1ee55a8f7f6b7ca4c0c59e0b4b4e3584a085c2d3 upstream.

I recently came upon a scenario where I would get a double fault
machine check exception tiriggered by a kernel module.
However the ensuing crash stacktrace (ksym lookup) was not working
correctly.

Turns out that machine check auto-disables MMU while modules are allocated
in kernel vaddr spapce.

This patch re-enables the MMU before start printing the stacktrace
making stacktracing of modules work upon a fatal exception.
