(Nearly) full tickless operation in 3.10
It is absolutely exploitable without requiring a NULL mapping. I've proven it with work, not words. Where's your proof?
fixed in v22.214.171.124

Btw., that you felt the need to name the exploit after me i found particularly telling (and somewhat amusing): it shows a basic lack of Git knowledge. 'git annotate kernel/perf_counter.c' is not hard to use at all, it shows who wrote what part of the kernel.
FYI, i did not write the code which had the bug and which we fixed, and based on which upstream fix you then distributed a working exploit for. (I reviewed and signed off on it, and i missed the bug, so no doubt i'm part of the chain of review responsibility - this example just further demonstrates exposes your irrational hatred.)

Police officers are prone to the same failing: with shift work and long
hours, after a while all they see of the non-police world is victims and
criminals, and the part they concentrate on is the criminals. Of course
they'll come to see everyone around them as a potential criminal.
