Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 416/459] powerpc/mm: Don't log user reads to 0xffffffff
Date
From: Christophe Leroy <christophe.leroy@c-s.fr>

[ Upstream commit 0f9aee0cb9da7db7d96f63cfa2dc5e4f1bffeb87 ]

Running vdsotest leaves many times the following log:

[ 79.629901] vdsotest[396]: User access of kernel address (ffffffff) - exploit attempt? (uid: 0)

A pointer set to (-1) is likely a programming error similar to
a NULL pointer and is not worth logging as an exploit attempt.

Don't log user accesses to 0xffffffff.
