[PATCH v3 2/3] MIPS: Remove noreturn attribute for die()

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


If notify_die() returns NOTIFY_STOP, honor the return value from the
handler chain invocation in die() as, through a debugger, the fault
may have been fixed. It makes sense even if ignoring the event will
make the system unstable, by allowing access through a debugger it
has been compromised already anyway. So we can remove the noreturn
attribute for die() to make our port consistent with x86, arm64,
riscv and csky.

Commit 20c0d2d44029 ("[PATCH] i386: pass proper trap numbers to die
chain handlers") may be the earliest of similar changes.
