x86: Extend #DF debugging aid to 64-bit
It is sometimes very helpful to be able to pinpoint the location which causes a double fault before it turns into a triple fault and the machine reboots. We have this for 32-bit already so extend it to 64-bit. On 64-bit we get the register snapshot at #DF time and not from the first exception which actually causes the #DF. It should be close enough, though. [ hpa: and definitely better than nothing, which is what we have now. ] Signed-off-by: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1368093749-31296-1-git-send-email-bp@alien8.de Signed-off-by: H.

bool "Enable doublefault exception handler" if EXPERT
- depends on X86_32
This option allows trapping of rare doublefault exceptions that
would otherwise cause a system to silently reboot. Disabling this
