x86/dumpstack: Fix x86_32 kernel_stack_pointer() previous stack access
commit 72b4f6a5e903b071f2a7c4eb1418cbe4eefdc344 upstream. On x86_32, when an interrupt happens from kernel space, SS and SP aren't pushed and the existing stack is used. So pt_regs is effectively two words shorter, and the previous stack pointer is normally the memory after the shortened pt_regs, aka '&regs->sp'. But in the rare case where the interrupt hits right after the stack pointer has been changed to point to an empty stack, like for example when call_on_stack() is used, the address immediately after the shortened pt_regs is no longer on the stack. In that case, instead of '&regs->sp', the previous stack pointer should be retrieved from the beginning of the current stack page. kernel_stack_pointer() wants to do that, but it forgets to dereference the pointer. So instead of returning a pointer to the previous stack, it returns a pointer to the beginning of the current stack. Note that it's probably outside of kernel_stack_pointer()'s scope to be switching stacks at all. The x86_64 version of this function doesn't do it, and it would be better for the caller to do it if necessary. But that's a patch for another day. This just fixes the original intent.
