The i965 miptree tiled_memcpy mode, added in 54c823ec ("i965/miptree: Use cpu tiling/detiling when mapping"), calls intel_miptree_map_raw(,,MAP_RAW) from intel_miptree_map_tiled_memcpy() and intel_miptree_unmap_tiled_memcpy(), and does not check return value.
This causes invalid pointer dereferences if the call fails, causing a segfault.
In my case the call fails because pre-4.0 kernel versions do not support I915_MMAP_WC so brw_bo_map_wc() fails (like in bug #110602), but I guess there may be a number of other failure cases where the mmap request may fail.
The code in intel_miptree_map() should select another mapping mode if tiled_memcpy mode is not possible due to missing I915_MMAP_WC. Attached is a quick workaround that avoids the mapping mode in my case.
There seem to be several other non-checked intel_miptree_map_raw() calls in intel_mipmap_tree.c (and several checked ones), but they do not add MAP_RAW flag so they did not fail for me. But maybe error checks should still be added to those as well in case of other failure reasons?
This was observed on a ValleyView Gen7 (8086:0f31) with kernel 3.10.35 with the attached small Qt program with Qt 5.11.2.
