Subject: [PATCH] ARM: mm: Facilitate debugging CONFIG_KUSER_HELPERS disabled
Date: Thu, 25 Oct 2018 11:09:55 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20181025180957.7900-1-f.fainelli@gmail.com> (raw)

Some software such as perf makes unconditional use of the special
[vectors] page which is only provided when CONFIG_KUSER_HELPERS is
enabled in the kernel.

Facilitate the debugging of such situations by printing a debug message
to the kernel log showing the task name and the faulting address.
