Looks like it failed to allocate shared memory for IPC. Will add error handling code for it.

RemoteDataDecoder in central and aurora are so diverged that uplifting is not going to work. Will generate 2 patch sets instead.

It's better to specify the individual exceptions, e.g.

    } catch (RemoteException|IOException e) {

But `Exception` is okay if you think the code can throw other exceptions that we don't know about right now.

Remove this line.

Add `, e);` to the `Log.e` call. This will automatically print the stack trace.

"e" should be a separate argument to `Log.e`, i.e.

> Log.e(LOGTAG, "fail to input sample: size=" + info.size +

Hi John,
The [Feature/Bug causing the regression] in template should not be the bug itself. We can take the patch this time in order to fix the crash. Please fill the correct bug/feature in the template next time for better judgment. Aurora53+.
