Subject: Re: [PATCH 4/7] uprobes/x86: Kill the "ia32_compat" check in
 handle_riprel_insn(), remove "mm" arg

* Oleg Nesterov <> [2014-03-31 21:44:05]:

> Kill the "mm->context.ia32_compat" check in handle_riprel_insn(), if
> it is true insn_rip_relative() must return false. validate_insn_bits()
> passed "ia32_compat" as !x86_64 to insn_init(), and insn_rip_relative()
> checks insn->x86_64.
> Also, remove the no longer needed "struct mm_struct *mm" argument and
> the unnecessary "return" at the end.
