I've been trying the dolphin emulator for android and to get it running with the opengles3.0 backend, we need to disable some kernel function. Otherwise, the device is rebooting.

this is the command we run with root right:
echo 0 > /sys/kernel/debug/kgsl/kgsl-3d0/fast_hang_detect
echo 0 > /sys/kernel/debug/kgsl/kgsl-3d0/ft_pagefault_policy
echo 0 > /sys/kernel/debug/kgsl/kgsl-3d0/ft_policy
echo 0 > /sys/kernel/debug/kgsl/kgsl-3d0/ib_check
echo 0 > /sys/kernel/debug/kgsl/kgsl-3d0/long_ib_detect

My guest is there is some flaw in these kernel function and maybe we can get root by using those flaw? Simply using an app ahah

Is there any possibility of a possible exploiting of these crash?

Thank, I'm simply curious. (and I've already root)
