Subject[PATCH 5.2 134/137] kexec: bail out upon SIGKILL when allocating memory.
Date
From: Tetsuo Handa <penguin-kernel@I-love.SAKURA.ne.jp>

commit 7c3a6aedcd6aae0a32a527e68669f7dd667492d1 upstream.

syzbot found that a thread can stall for minutes inside kexec_load() after
that thread was killed by SIGKILL [1]. It turned out that the reproducer
was trying to allocate 2408MB of memory using kimage_alloc_page() from
kimage_load_normal_segment(). Let's check for SIGKILL before doing memory
allocation.
