Subject[PATCH 4.17 057/101] s390/qeth: avoid using is_multicast_ether_addr_64bits on (u8 *)[6]
Date
4.17-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Vasily Gorbik <gor@linux.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit 9d0a58fb9747afd27d490c02a97889a1b59f6be4 ]

*ether_addr*_64bits functions have been introduced to optimize
performance critical paths, which access 6-byte ethernet address as u64
value to get "nice" assembly. A harmless hack works nicely on ethernet
addresses shoved into a structure or a larger buffer, until busted by
Kasan on smth like plain (u8 *)[6].

qeth_l2_set_mac_address calls qeth_l2_remove_mac passing
u8 old_addr[ETH_ALEN] as an argument.

Adding/removing macs for an ethernet adapter is not that performance
critical. Moreover is_multicast_ether_addr_64bits itself on s390 is not
faster than is_multicast_ether_addr:

is_multicast_ether_addr(%r2) -> %r2
llc %r2,0(%r2)
risbg %r2,%r2,63,191,0

is_multicast_ether_addr_64bits(%r2) -> %r2
llgc %r2,0(%r2)
risbg %r2,%r2,63,191,0

So, let's just use is_multicast_ether_addr instead of
is_multicast_ether_addr_64bits.
