When running BOINC under any of the 4.9 kernel, several projects tasks 
terminate immediately in error with messages like this:

process got signal 11
SIGSEGV: segmentation violation

(example above is from WorldCommunityGrid)

Returning to 4.8 kernel allows the sames tasks to run fine.

Any idea what changes 4.9 introduces that breaks this ?

Show a backtrace, either from running in gdb or enable coredumps and
print them from one.

This is the vdso address.

According to this commit, it probably broke due to
CONFIG_LEGACY_VSYSCALL_NONE=y:

Nice find!

if I understand correctly:
- either programs need to be update/recompiled to no longer use the 
old vsyscall 
- either kernel has to be compile with 
option CONFIG_LEGACY_VSYSCALL_EMULATE=y
