Subject[PATCH 2/2] x86/selftests/pkeys: fork() to check for state being preserved
From
Date

From: Dave Hansen <dave.hansen@linux.intel.com>

There was a bug where the per-mm pkey state was not being preserved
across fork() in the child. fork() is performed in the pkey
selftests, but all of our pkey activity is performed in the parent.
The child does not perform any actions sensitive to pkey state.

To make the test more sensitive to these kinds of bugs, add a
fork() where we let the parent exit, and continue execution in
the child.

This patch removes an early 'break;' on the first allocation failure,
making the test sensitive to mis-allowed allocations after fork().
However, this means that the loop always runs to completion and we
must remove the test ensuring the loop never completes.
