selftests/x86: Support Atom for syscall_arg_fault test
Atom-based CPUs trigger stack fault when invoke 32-bit SYSENTER instruction
with invalid register values. So we also need SIGBUS handling in this case.
Following is assembly when the fault exception happens.
(gdb) disassemble $eip
Dump of assembler code for function __kernel_vsyscall:
0xf7fd8fe0 <+0>: push %ecx
0xf7fd8fe1 <+1>: push %edx
0xf7fd8fe2 <+2>: push %ebp
0xf7fd8fe3 <+3>: mov %esp,%ebp
0xf7fd8fe5 <+5>: sysenter
0xf7fd8fe7 <+7>: int $0x80
=> 0xf7fd8fe9 <+9>: pop %ebp
0xf7fd8fea <+10>: pop %edx
0xf7fd8feb <+11>: pop %ecx
0xf7fd8fec <+12>: ret
End of assembler dump.
According to Intel SDM, this could also be a Stack Segment Fault(#SS, 12),
except a normal Page Fault(#PF, 14). Especially, in section 6.9 of Vol.3A,
both stack and page faults are within the 10th(lowest priority) class, and
as it said, "exceptions within each class are implementation-dependent and
may vary from processor to processor". It's expected for processors like
Intel Atom to trigger stack fault(SIGBUS), while we get page fault(SIGSEGV)
from common Core processors.
