[ Upstream commit bcb7825a77f41c7dd91da6f7ac10b928156a322e ]

The normalization pass in the sorting routine of the relative exception
table serves two purposes:
- it ensures that the address fields of the exception table entries are
  fully ordered, so that no ambiguities arise between entries with
  identical instruction offsets (i.e., when two instructions that are
  exactly 8 bytes apart each have an exception table entry associated with
- it ensures that the offsets of both the instruction and the fixup fields
  of each entry are relative to their final location after sorting.

Commit eb608fb366de ("s390/exceptions: switch to relative exception table
entries") ported the relative exception table format from x86, but modified
the sorting routine to only normalize the instruction offset field and not
the fixup offset field. The result is that the fixup offset of each entry
will be relative to the original location of the entry before sorting,
likely leading to crashes when those entries are dereferenced.
