Subject[PATCH] ARM: mm: Facilitate debugging CONFIG_KUSER_HELPERS disabled
Date
Some software such as perf makes unconditional use of the special
[vectors] page which is only provided when CONFIG_KUSER_HELPERS is
enabled in the kernel.

Facilitate the debugging of such situations by printing a debug message
to the kernel log showing the task name and the faulting address.
