Subject[PATCH 3.18 017/120] arm64: Add trace_hardirqs_off annotation in ret_to_user
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Catalin Marinas <>

commit db3899a6477a4dccd26cbfb7f408b6be2cc068e0 upstream.

When a kernel is built with CONFIG_TRACE_IRQFLAGS the following warning
is produced when entering userspace for the first time:

This happens because we disable interrupts in ret_to_user before calling
schedule() in work_resched. This patch adds the necessary
trace_hardirqs_off annotation.
