Subject[GIT PULL] misc core kernel changes
Linus,

Please pull the latest core-core-for-linus git tree from:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git core-core-for-linus

# HEAD: 5ad751053704df3f00d2bb2dc9345c697c212150 panic: Add closing panic marker parenthesis

Two changes:

- add membarriers to Documentation/features/
- fix a minor nit in panic printk formatting

Thanks,

Ingo

+# Rely on eret context synchronization when returning from IPI handler, and
+# when returning to user-space.
+#
+# * x86
+#
+# x86-32 uses IRET as return from interrupt, which takes care of the IPI.
+# However, it uses both IRET and SYSEXIT to go back to user-space. The IRET
+# instruction is core serializing, but not SYSEXIT.
+#
+# x86-64 uses IRET as return from interrupt, which takes care of the IPI.
+# However, it can return to user-space through either SYSRETL (compat code),
+# SYSRETQ, or IRET.
+#
+# Given that neither SYSRET{L,Q}, nor SYSEXIT, are core serializing, we rely
+# instead on write_cr3() performed by switch_mm() to provide core serialization
+# after changing the current mm, and deal with the special case of kthread ->
+# uthread (temporarily keeping current mm into active_mm) by issuing a
+# sync_core_before_usermode() in that specific case.
