Subject[PATCH 4.4 12/78] x86/mm, sched/core: Turn off IRQs in switch_mm()
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Andy Lutomirski <luto@kernel.org>

commit 078194f8e9fe3cf54c8fd8bded48a1db5bd8eb8a upstream.

Potential races between switch_mm() and TLB-flush or LDT-flush IPIs
could be very messy. AFAICT the code is currently okay, whether by
accident or by careful design, but enabling PCID will make it
considerably more complicated and will no longer be obviously safe.

Fix it with a big hammer: run switch_mm() with IRQs off.

To avoid a performance hit in the scheduler, we take advantage of
our knowledge that the scheduler already has IRQs disabled when it
calls switch_mm().
