Probably happens on all ARM, with
CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT
CONFIG_DEBUG_ATOMIC_SLEEP

This simple program....

int main() {
   *((char*)0xc0001000) = 0;
};

Oxc0000000 belongs to kernel address space, user task can not be
allowed to access it. For above condition, correct result is that
test case should receive a “segment fault” and exits but not stacks.

the root cause is commit 02fe2845d6a8 ("avoid enabling interrupts in
prefetch/data abort handlers"),it deletes irq enable block in Data
abort assemble code and move them into page/breakpiont/alignment fault
handlers instead. But author does not enable irq in translation/section
permission fault handlers. ARM disables irq when it enters exception/
interrupt mode, if kernel doesn't enable irq, it would be still disabled
during translation/section permission fault.

We see the above splat because do_force_sig_info is still called with
IRQs off, and that code eventually does a:

        spin_lock_irqsave(&t->sighand->siglock, flags);

As this is architecture independent code, and we've not seen any other
need for other arch to have the siglock converted to raw lock, we can
conclude that we should enable irq for ARM translation/section
permission exception.
