Subject[PATCH 4.14 046/164] x86/idt: Load idt early in start_secondary
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Chunyu Hu <chuhu@redhat.com>

commit 55d2d0ad2fb4325f615d1950486fbc5e6fba1769 upstream.

On a secondary, idt is first loaded in cpu_init() with load_current_idt(),
i.e. no exceptions can be handled before that point.

The conversion of WARN() to use UD requires the IDT being loaded earlier as
any warning between start_secondary() and load_curren_idt() in cpu_init()
will result in an unhandled @UD exception and therefore fail the bringup of
the CPU.

Install the IDT handlers right in start_secondary() before calling cpu_init().
