Subject[PATCH 3/3] x86/entry/32: Copy only ptregs on paranoid entry/exit path
Date
From: Joerg Roedel <jroedel@suse.de>

The code that switches from entry- to task-stack when we
enter from kernel-mode copies the full entry-stack contents
to the task-stack.

That is because we don't trust that the entry-stack
contents. But actually we can trust its contents if we are
not scheduled between entry and exit.

So do less copying and move only the ptregs over to the
task-stack in this code-path.
