Subject: [PATCH 5.1 180/405] x86/irq/64: Limit IST stack overflow check to #DB stack

[ Upstream commit 7dbcf2b0b770eeb803a416ee8dcbef78e6389d40 ]

Commit

  37fe6a42b343 ("x86: Check stack overflow in detail")

added a broad check for the full exception stack area, i.e. it considers
the full exception stack area as valid.

That's wrong in two aspects:

 1) It does not check the individual areas one by one

 2) #DF, NMI and #MCE are not enabling interrupts which means that a
    regular device interrupt cannot happen in their context. In fact if a
    device interrupt hits one of those IST stacks that's a bug because some
    code path enabled interrupts while handling the exception.

Limit the check to the #DB stack and consider all other IST stacks as
'overflow' or invalid.
