Subject: [PATCH 2/8] x86/ftrace: Remove fault protection code in prepare_ftrace_return
Date: Tue, 31 Aug 2021 11:50:11 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210831095017.412311-3-jolsa@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210831095017.412311-1-jolsa@kernel.org>

From: "Steven Rostedt (VMware)" <rostedt@goodmis.org>

Removing the fault protection code when writing return_hooker
to stack. As Steven noted:

> That protection was there from the beginning due to being "paranoid",
> considering ftrace was bricking network cards. But that protection
> would not have even protected against that.
