OK, here is the patch. Does it work for us?

====
x86/uaccess: Verify access_ok() context strictly

From: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@...nel.org>

WARN_ON_IN_IRQ() assumes that the access_ok() and following
user memory access can sleep. But this assumption is not
always correct; when the pagefault is disabled, following
memory access will just returns -EFAULT and never sleep.

Add pagefault_disabled() check in WARN_ON_ONCE() so that
it can ignore the case we call it with disabling pagefault.
For this purpose, this modified pagefault_disabled() as
an inline function.
