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

------------------

From: Mark Rutland <mark.rutland@arm.com>

commit 7d9e8f71b989230bc613d121ca38507d34ada849 upstream.

Generally, taking an unexpected exception should be a fatal event, and
bad_mode is intended to cater for this. However, it should be possible
to contain unexpected synchronous exceptions from EL0 without bringing
the kernel down, by sending a SIGILL to the task.

We tried to apply this approach in commit 9955ac47f4ba1c95 ("arm64:
don't kill the kernel on a bad esr from el0"), by sending a signal for
any bad_mode call resulting from an EL0 exception.

However, this also applies to other unexpected exceptions, such as
SError and FIQ. The entry paths for these exceptions branch to bad_mode
without configuring the link register, and have no kernel_exit. Thus, if
we take one of these exceptions from EL0, bad_mode will eventually
return to the original user link register value.

This patch fixes this by introducing a new bad_el0_sync handler to cater
for the recoverable case, and restoring bad_mode to its original state,
whereby it calls panic() and never returns. The recoverable case
branches to bad_el0_sync with a bl, and returns to userspace via the
usual ret_to_user mechanism.
