4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Michael Schmitz <schmitz...@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 9dfa7bba35ac08a63565d58c454dccb7e1bb0a08 ]

get_reg() can be reentered on architectures with prioritized interrupts
(m68k in this case), causing f->reg_index to be incremented after the
range check. Out of bounds memory access past the pt_regs struct results.
This will go mostly undetected unless access is beyond end of memory.

Prevent the race by disabling interrupts in get_reg().

Tested on m68k (Atari Falcon, and ARAnyM emulator).

Kudos to Geert Uytterhoeven for helping to trace this race.
