Subject[PATCH] x86/mm: Remove in_nmi() warning from 64bit implementation of vmalloc_fault()
From: Jiri Kosina <>

In-NMI warnings have been added to vmalloc_fault() via ebc8827f75 ("x86:
Barf when vmalloc and kmemcheck faults happen in NMI") back in the time
when our NMI entry code could not cope with nested NMIs.

These days, it's perfectly fine to take a fault in NMI context and we
don't have to care about the fact that IRET from the fault handler might
cause NMI nesting.

This warning has already been removed from 32bit implementation of
vmalloc_fault() in 6863ea0cda8 ("x86/mm: Remove in_nmi() warning from
vmalloc_fault()"), but 64bit version was omitted.

Remove the bogus warning also from 64bit implementation of vmalloc_fault().

Fixes: 6863ea0cda8 ("x86/mm: Remove in_nmi() warning from vmalloc_fault()")
