Merge tag 'for_linus-3.19-rc4' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jwessel/kgdb
Pull kgdb/kdb fixes from Jason Wessel: "These have been around since 3.17 and in kgdb-next for the last 9 weeks and some will go back to -stable. Summary of changes: Cleanups - kdb: Remove unused command flags, repeat flags and KDB_REPEAT_NONE Fixes - kgdb/kdb: Allow access on a single core, if a CPU round up is deemed impossible, which will allow inspection of the now "trashed" kernel - kdb: Add enable mask for the command groups - kdb: access controls to restrict sensitive commands" * tag 'for_linus-3.19-rc4' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jwessel/kgdb: kernel/debug/debug_core.c: Logging clean-up kgdb: timeout if secondary CPUs ignore the roundup kdb: Allow access to sensitive commands to be restricted by default kdb: Add enable mask for groups of commands kdb: Categorize kdb commands (similar to SysRq categorization) kdb: Remove KDB_REPEAT_NONE flag kdb: Use KDB_REPEAT_* values as flags kdb: Rename kdb_register_repeat() to kdb_register_flags() kdb: Rename kdb_repeat_t to kdb_cmdflags_t, cmd_repeat to cmd_flags kdb: Remove currently unused kdbtab_t->cmd_flags

+ Alternatively the following bitmask applies:
+ 0x0002 - allow arbitrary reads from memory and symbol lookup
+ 0x0004 - allow arbitrary writes to memory
+ 0x0008 - allow current register state to be inspected
+ 0x0010 - allow current register state to be modified
+ 0x0020 - allow passive inspection (backtrace, process list, lsmod)
+ 0x0040 - allow flow control management (breakpoint, single step)
+ 0x0080 - enable signalling of processes
+ 0x0100 - allow machine to be rebooted

+ setting with kdb.cmd_enable=X kernel command line option will
