powerpc: Call do_page_fault() with interrupts off
We currently turn interrupts back to their previous state before calling do_page_fault(). This can be annoying when debugging as a bad fault will potentially have lost some processor state before getting into the debugger. We also end up calling some generic code with interrupts enabled such as notify_page_fault() with interrupts enabled, which could be unexpected. This changes our code to behave more like other architectures, and make the assembly entry code call into do_page_faults() with interrupts disabled. They are conditionally re-enabled from within do_page_fault() in the same spot x86 does it. While there, add the might_sleep() test in the case of a successful trylock of the mmap semaphore, again like x86. Also fix a bug in the existing assembly where r12 (_MSR) could get clobbered by C calls (the DTL accounting in the exception common macro and DISABLE_INTS) in some cases. Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org> --- v2. Add the r12 clobber fix
