commit 1926150ee350e17fee2aeabb8ef781222d94366e
Author: Dave Anderson <>
Date: Mon Jun 11 13:46:41 2018 -0400
Fix for the ppc64/ppc64le "bt" command on Linux 4.7 and later kernels
that contain commit d8bff643d81a58181356c0aa3ab771ac10da6894,
titled "[x86] asm: Make sure verify_cpu() has a good stack", which
inadvertently breaks the ppc64/ppc64le kernel stack size calculation
when running with crash-7.2.2 or later. Without the patch, "bt" may
fail with a filtered kdump dumpfile with the two error messages
"bt: page excluded: kernel virtual address: <address> type: stack
contents" and "bt: read of stack at <address> failed".
