Subject[PATCH 4.4 07/40] arm64: ensure __dump_instr() checks addr_limit
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Mark Rutland <mark.rutland@arm.com>

commit 7a7003b1da010d2b0d1dc8bf21c10f5c73b389f1 upstream.

It's possible for a user to deliberately trigger __dump_instr with a
chosen kernel address.

Let's avoid problems resulting from this by using get_user() rather than
__get_user(), ensuring that we don't erroneously access kernel memory.

Where we use __dump_instr() on kernel text, we already switch to
KERNEL_DS, so this shouldn't adversely affect those cases.

Fixes: 60ffc30d5652810d ("arm64: Exception handling")
