2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Anfei <anfei.zhou@gmail.com>

commit 5e27fb78df95e027723af2c90ecc9b4527ae59e9 upstream.

Instruction faults on pre-ARMv6 CPUs are interpreted as
a 'translation fault', but do_translation_fault doesn't
handle well if user mode trying to run instruction above
TASK_SIZE, and result in the infinite retry of that
