ARM: 6166/1: Proper prefetch abort handling on pre-ARMv6
Anfei [Tue, 8 Jun 2010 14:16:49 +0000 (15:16 +0100)]
Instruction faults on pre-ARMv6 CPUs are interpreted as
a 'translation fault', but do_translation_fault doesn't
handle well if user mode trying to run instruction above
TASK_SIZE, and result in the infinite retry of that
instruction.
