powerpc/kprobe: Fix oops when kprobed on 'stdu' instruction
If we set a kprobe on a 'stdu' instruction on powerpc64, we see a kernel OOPS: Bad kernel stack pointer cd93c840 at c000000000009868 Oops: Bad kernel stack pointer, sig: 6 [#1] ... GPR00: c000001fcd93cb30 00000000cd93c840 c0000000015c5e00 00000000cd93c840 ... NIP [c000000000009868] resume_kernel+0x2c/0x58 LR [c000000000006208] program_check_common+0x108/0x180 On a 64-bit system when the user probes on a 'stdu' instruction, the kernel does not emulate actual store in emulate_step() because it may corrupt the exception frame. So the kernel does the actual store operation in exception return code i.e. resume_kernel(). resume_kernel() loads the saved stack pointer from memory using lwz, which only loads the low 32-bits of the address, causing the kernel crash. Fix this by loading the 64-bit value instead.
