Subject[PATCH 4.4 031/131] arm64: traps: disable irq in die()
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Qiao Zhou <qiaozhou@asrmicro.com>

commit 6f44a0bacb79a03972c83759711832b382b1b8ac upstream.

In current die(), the irq is disabled for __die() handle, not
including the possible panic() handling. Since the log in __die()
can take several hundreds ms, new irq might come and interrupt
current die().

If the process calling die() holds some critical resource, and some
other process scheduled later also needs it, then it would deadlock.
The first panic will not be executed.

So here disable irq for the whole flow of die().
