Subject[PATCH 4.4 06/78] x86/mm: If INVPCID is available, use it to flush global mappings
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Andy Lutomirski <luto@kernel.org>

commit d8bced79af1db6734f66b42064cc773cada2ce99 upstream.

On my Skylake laptop, INVPCID function 2 (flush absolutely
everything) takes about 376ns, whereas saving flags, twiddling
CR4.PGE to flush global mappings, and restoring flags takes about
539ns.
