Subject[PATCH 4.15 18/72] powerpc/64s: Fix i-side SLB miss bad address handler saving nonvolatile GPRs
4.15-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Nicholas Piggin <>

commit 52396500f97c53860164debc7d4f759077853423 upstream.

The SLB bad address handler's trap number fixup does not preserve the
low bit that indicates nonvolatile GPRs have not been saved. This
leads save_nvgprs to skip saving them, and subsequent functions and
return from interrupt will think they are saved.

This causes kernel branch-to-garbage debugging to not have correct
registers, can also cause userspace to have its registers clobbered
after a segfault.

Fixes: f0f558b131db ("powerpc/mm: Preserve CFAR value on SLB miss caused by access to bogus address")
