[PATCH v6 2/9] vsprintf: Consistent %pK handling for kptr_restrict == 0




restricted_pointer() pretends that it prints the address when kptr_restrict
is set to zero. But it is never called in this situation. Instead,
pointer() falls back to ptr_to_id() and hashes the pointer.

This patch removes the potential confusion. klp_restrict is checked only
in restricted_pointer().

It actually fixes a small race when the address might get printed unhashed:

CPU0                            CPU1

pointer()
  if (!kptr_restrict)
     /* for example set to 2 */
  restricted_pointer()
				/* echo 0 >/proc/sys/kernel/kptr_restrict */
				proc_dointvec_minmax_sysadmin()
				  klpr_restrict = 0;
    switch(kptr_restrict)
      case 0:
	break:

    number()

Fixes: commit ef0010a30935de4e0211 ("vsprintf: don't use 'restricted_pointer()' when not restricting")
