Subject[PATCH 4.4 063/107] x86/process: Optimize TIF checks in __switch_to_xtra()
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Kyle Huey <me@kylehuey.com>

commit af8b3cd3934ec60f4c2a420d19a9d416554f140b upstream

Help the compiler to avoid reevaluating the thread flags for each checked
bit by reordering the bit checks and providing an explicit xor for
evaluation.

With default defconfigs for each arch,
