Larry reported a machine check. Or in fact, he reported a Oops in 
kprobe_handler(), that Oops being a bug in kprobe_handle() triggered by 
this machine check.

By converting a VM address to a phys-like address as if is was linear 
mem, you get in the dark. Either there is some physical memory at that 
address and you corrupt it. Or there is none and you get a machine check.

Euh ... I'm saying that data MMU has to be enabled, so I'm enabling it.

Am I ?

At the time of the RFI just above, SRR1 contains the value of r9 which 
has been set 2 lines before to MSR_KERNEL & ~(MSR_IR|MSR_DR).

What should be clear in the commit message ?
