Subject[PATCH v4 23/23] bpf: Fail bpf_probe_write_user() while mm is switched
Date
From: Nadav Amit <namit@vmware.com>

When using a temporary mm, bpf_probe_write_user() should not be able to
write to user memory, since user memory addresses may be used to map
kernel memory. Detect these cases and fail bpf_probe_write_user() in
such cases.
