Thank you!!! You just found the bug :-)

The bug was caused by:

commit 25c74b10bacead867478480170083f69cfc0db48
x86, trace: Register exception handler to trace IDT

With this code:

dotraplinkage void __kprobes
trace_do_page_fault(struct pt_regs *regs, unsigned long error_code)
{
enum ctx_state prev_state;

prev_state = exception_enter();
trace_page_fault_entries(regs, error_code);
__do_page_fault(regs, error_code);
exception_exit(prev_state);
}

The trace_page_fault_entries() which is called before the cr2 is saved
can fault by perf doing a userspace stack trace. But the cr2 is not
restored when calling __do_page_fault() and that gets the wrong cr2.

Below is a patch that should fix this. Please remove all other patches
and try this out.

Thanks,

-- Steve
