Subject[PATCH 4.19 039/103] s390/mm: always force a load of the primary ASCE on context switch
Date
4.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com>

commit a38662084c8bdb829ff486468c7ea801c13fcc34 upstream.

The ASCE of an mm_struct can be modified after a task has been created,
e.g. via crst_table_downgrade for a compat process. The active_mm logic
to avoid the switch_mm call if the next task is a kernel thread can
lead to a situation where switch_mm is called where 'prev == next' is
true but 'prev->context.asce == next->context.asce' is not.

This can lead to a situation where a CPU uses the outdated ASCE to run
a task. The result can be a crash, endless loops and really subtle
problem due to TLBs being created with an invalid ASCE.

Fixes: 53e857f30867 ("s390/mm,tlb: race of lazy TLB flush vs. recreation")
