[PATCH 09/10] riscv: fix livelock in uaccess

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


riscv equivalent of 26178ec11ef3 "x86: mm: consolidate VM_FAULT_RETRY handling"
If e.g. get_user() triggers a page fault and a fatal signal is caught, we might
end up with handle_mm_fault() returning VM_FAULT_RETRY and not doing anything
to page tables.  In such case we must *not* return to the faulting insn -
that would repeat the entire thing without making any progress; what we need
instead is to treat that as failed (user) memory access.
