Subject[RFC 1/2] x86/entry/64: Use the TSS sp2 slot for rsp_scratch
Date
In the non-trampoline SYSCALL64 path, we use a percpu variable to
temporarily store the user RSP value. Instead of a separate
variable, use the otherwise unused sp2 slot in the TSS. This will
improve cache locality, as the sp1 slot is already used in the same
code to find the kernel stack. It will also simplify a future
change to make the non-trampoline path work in PTI mode.
