Subject[PATCH 4.4 009/118] powerpc/tm: do not use r13 for tabort_syscall
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Nicholas Piggin <npiggin@gmail.com>

commit cc7786d3ee7e3c979799db834b528db2c0834c2e upstream.

tabort_syscall runs with RI=1, so a nested recoverable machine
check will load the paca into r13 and overwrite what we loaded
it with, because exceptions returning to privileged mode do not
restore r13.

Fixes: b4b56f9ecab4 (powerpc/tm: Abort syscalls in active transactions)
