    arm64: fix dump_instr when PAN and UAO are in use · c5cea06b

    If the kernel is set to show unhandled signals, and a user task does not
    handle a SIGILL as a result of an instruction abort, we will attempt to
    log the offending instruction with dump_instr before killing the task.
    
    We use dump_instr to log the encoding of the offending userspace
    instruction. However, dump_instr is also used to dump instructions from
    kernel space, and internally always switches to KERNEL_DS before dumping
    the instruction with get_user. When both PAN and UAO are in use, reading
    a user instruction via get_user while in KERNEL_DS will result in a
    permission fault, which leads to an Oops.
    
    As we have regs corresponding to the context of the original instruction
    abort, we can inspect this and only flip to KERNEL_DS if the original
    abort was taken from the kernel, avoiding this issue. At the same time,
    remove the redundant (and incorrect) comments regarding the order
    dump_mem and dump_instr are called in.
