SubjectRe: [PATCH] x86 trace: Fix page fault tracing bug
Vince, can you test this patch instead. Seems that the bug you found was
found by others. You can remove all patches again, and modify this patch such
that the read of cr2 is before the exception_enter() call (in both locations)

Please also add:

Reported-by: Vince Weaver <vincent.weaver@maine.edu>

And after verificiation, add a Tested-by for him too. He's been doing a
lot to help us solve this bug (from a different angle).
