Subject: [RFC PATCH 0/3] Enable kprobe to monitor sdei event handler

When I use kprobe to monitor a sdei event handler, the CPU will hang. It's
because when I probe the event handler, the instruction will be replaced with 
brk instruction and brk exception is unmaskable. But 'vbar_el1' contains 
'tramp_vectors' in '_sdei_handler' when SDEI events interrupt userspace, so
we will go to the wrong place if brk exception happens.

I notice that 'ghes_sdei_normal_callback' call several funtions that are not
marked as 'nokprobe'. So I was wondering if we can enable kprobe in '_sdei_handler'.

Xiongfeng Wang (3):
  Revert "arm64: debug: remove unused local_dbg_{enable, disable}
  sdei: enable dbg in '_sdei_handler'
  stop_machine: mask sdei before running the callback
