Subject[PATCH v8 4/7] extable: Add function to search only kernel exception table
Date
Certain architecture specific operating modes (e.g., in powerpc machine
check handler that is unable to access vmalloc memory), the
search_exception_tables cannot be called because it also searches the
module exception tables if entry is not found in the kernel exception
table.
