Subject[PATCH 4.4 4/7] fs/proc: Stop reporting eip and esp in /proc/PID/stat
Date
From: Andy Lutomirski <luto@kernel.org>

commit 0a1eb2d474edfe75466be6b4677ad84e5e8ca3f5 upstream.

Reporting these fields on a non-current task is dangerous. If the
task is in any state other than normal kernel code, they may contain
garbage or even kernel addresses on some architectures. (x86_64
used to do this. I bet lots of architectures still do.) With
CONFIG_THREAD_INFO_IN_TASK=y, it can OOPS, too.

As far as I know, there are no use programs that make any material
use of these fields, so just get rid of them.
