Thanks, now your problem seems clearer.

It seems that this happens because in "Action Required" case kill_proc()
takes the first branch for current process, while it takes the else branch
for other affected processes:

static int kill_proc(struct to_kill *tk, unsigned long pfn, int flags)
{
...

if ((flags & MF_ACTION_REQUIRED) && t->mm == current->mm) {
ret = force_sig_mceerr(BUS_MCEERR_AR, (void __user *)tk->addr,
addr_lsb);
} else {
/*
* Don't use force here, it's convenient if the signal
* can be temporarily blocked.
* This could cause a loop when the user sets SIGBUS
* to SIG_IGN, but hopefully no one will do that?
*/
ret = send_sig_mceerr(BUS_MCEERR_AO, (void __user *)tk->addr,
addr_lsb, t); /* synchronous? */
}

Sending SIGBUS with BUS_MCEERR_AO for action optional error is strange, so
maybe this logic should be like this:


if (flags & MF_ACTION_REQUIRED) {
if (t->mm == current->mm)
ret = force_sig_mceerr(BUS_MCEERR_AR, (void __user *)tk->addr,
addr_lsb);
/* send no signal to non-current processes */
} else {
/*
* Don't use force here, it's convenient if the signal
* can be temporarily blocked.
* This could cause a loop when the user sets SIGBUS
* to SIG_IGN, but hopefully no one will do that?
*/
ret = send_sig_mceerr(BUS_MCEERR_AO, (void __user *)tk->addr,
addr_lsb, t); /* synchronous? */
}

Sorry, my previous comment around task_early_kill() is for a separate problem,
so I'll try some fix on this later.

Thanks,
