[PATCH 4.13 31/33] x86/debug: Handle warnings before the notifier chain, to fix KGDB crash

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


From: Alexander Shishkin <alexander.shishkin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit b8347c2196492f4e1cccde3d92fda1cc2cc7de7e upstream.


  9a93848fe787 ("x86/debug: Implement __WARN() using UD0")

turned warnings into UD0, but the fixup code only runs after the
notify_die() chain. This is a problem, in particular, with kgdb,
which kicks in as if it was a BUG().

Fix this by running the fixup code before the notifier chain in
the invalid op handler path.
