Description Jan Palus 2022-06-09 16:55:53 UTC
Various different ARM 32-bit platforms exhibit following null pointer dereference when loading bpf_preload during boot of 5.18.0 (following sample from Raspberry Pi 2):

Comment 1 Jan Palus 2022-08-25 18:55:03 UTC
With kernel 5.19.4 issue is gone. Tried 5.19.2 before so there is slight chance it was fixed by 5.19.3 but looking at changelog it's unlikely.
Comment 2 Jan Palus 2022-08-25 19:17:19 UTC
My best guess would be that following commit fixed it:

commit 1f6db7148ed7382b336c5827af33b5d9e992630e
