Subject[PATCH 4.9 003/138] s390/disassembler: add missing end marker for e7 table
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Heiko Carstens <>

commit 5c50538752af7968f53924b22dede8ed4ce4cb3b upstream.

The e7 opcode table does not have an end marker. Hence when trying to
find an unknown e7 instruction the code will access memory behind the
table until it finds something that matches the opcode, or the kernel
crashes, whatever comes first.

This affects not only the in-kernel disassembler but also uprobes and
kprobes which refuse to set a probe on unknown instructions, and
therefore search the opcode tables to figure out if instructions are
known or not.
