Subject[PATCH 4.15 41/64] arm64: cpufeature: Fix CTR_EL0 field definitions
Date
4.15-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Will Deacon <will.deacon@arm.com>

commit be68a8aaf925aaf35574260bf820bb09d2f9e07f upstream.

Our field definitions for CTR_EL0 suffer from a number of problems:

- The IDC and DIC fields are missing, which causes us to enable CTR
trapping on CPUs with either of these returning non-zero values.

- The ERG is FTR_LOWER_SAFE, whereas it should be treated like CWG as
FTR_HIGHER_SAFE so that applications can use it to avoid false sharing.

- [nit] A RES1 field is described as "RAO"

This patch updates the CTR_EL0 field definitions to fix these issues.
