Subject[PATCH 4.14 058/164] s390: always save and restore all registers on context switch
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Heiko Carstens <heiko.carstens@de.ibm.com>

commit fbbd7f1a51965b50dd12924841da0d478f3da71b upstream.

The switch_to() macro has an optimization to avoid saving and
restoring register contents that aren't needed for kernel threads.

There is however the possibility that a kernel thread execve's a user
space program. In such a case the execve'd process can partially see
the contents of the previous process, which shouldn't be allowed.

To avoid this, simply always save and restore register contents on
context switch.

Fixes: fdb6d070effba ("switch_to: dont restore/save access & fpu regs for kernel threads")
