Commit Message

Xiaoming Ni Oct. 16, 2020, 2:31 a.m. UTC
Printing raw pointer values in backtraces has potential security
implications and are of questionable value anyway.

This patch follows x86 and arm64's lead and removes the "Exception stack:"
dump from kernel backtraces:
	commit a25ffd3a6302a6 ("arm64: traps: Don't print stack or raw
	 PC/LR values in backtraces")
	commit bb5e5ce545f203 ("x86/dumpstack: Remove kernel text
	 addresses from stack dump")

Signed-off-by: Xiaoming Ni <nixiaoming@huawei.com>

-------
v2:
 Delete [<hex numbers>] from the stack according to the email discussion
 in patch V1, Other information processing will be discussed in subsequent
 patches.

v1: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20201009075957.110017-1-nixiaoming@huawei.com/
  1. Don't print stack or raw PC/LR hex values in backtraces
  2. Don't print stack mem in backtraces
  3. if (!panic_on_oops), Don't print stack mem in __die()

The arm tree was closed due to the merge window, and thus patches do
not get applied at that point. Plus I tend not to review development
patches during the merge window.
