Bug Description

The tm_reclaim_thread function in arch/powerpc/kernel/process.c in the Linux kernel before 4.4.1 on powerpc platforms does not ensure that TM suspend mode exists before proceeding with a tm_reclaim call, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (TM Bad Thing exception and panic) via a crafted application.

Break-Fix: fb09692e71f13af7298eb603a1975850b1c7a8d8 7f821fc9c77a9b01fe7b1d6e72717b33d8d64142
