Subject[PATCH 4.19 79/81] x86/asm: Fix MWAITX C-state hint value
Date
From: Janakarajan Natarajan <Janakarajan.Natarajan@amd.com>

commit 454de1e7d970d6bc567686052329e4814842867c upstream.

As per "AMD64 Architecture Programmer's Manual Volume 3: General-Purpose
and System Instructions", MWAITX EAX[7:4]+1 specifies the optional hint
of the optimized C-state. For C0 state, EAX[7:4] should be set to 0xf.

Currently, a value of 0xf is set for EAX[3:0] instead of EAX[7:4]. Fix
this by changing MWAITX_DISABLE_CSTATES from 0xf to 0xf0.

This hasn't had any implications so far because setting reserved bits in
EAX is simply ignored by the CPU.

[ bp: Fixup comment in delay_mwaitx() and massage. ]
