This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed- trusty' to 'verification-done-trusty'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-trusty' to 'verification-failed- trusty'.
If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed.

The patch is quite large but the backport was a simple context adjustment. Ran the x86 selftests and perf NMI tests for several hours to verify stability. == Test Case == Compile the Trusty 3.13 kernel code using the default config (make defconfig) and run the resulting kernel in QMEU. Crashes every time.

This is done by adjusting the fixup code pointer by a (random) constant 0x7ffffff0. This is detected in fixup_exception by comparing the two pointers. The intent of this code is to detect the the delta between the original code and its fixup code being greater than the constant. However, the code as written triggers undefined comparison behaviour. In this kernel this prevents the condition triggering, leading to panics when jumping to the corrupted fixup address. Convert the code to better implement the intent. Convert both of the offsets to final addresses and compare the delta between those. Also add a massive comment to explain all of this including the implicit assumptions on order of the segments that this comparison implies.
