Subject[PATCH v2 0/3] Fix small issues in XSAVES
Rebase v1 to Linux v5.5-rc1.  This supersedes the previous version, but
does not have any functional changes.

The first two patches in this series are split from my supervisor xstate
patches [2]. The third is to fix a vital issue in __fpu_restore_sig(),
and more RFC than the others. All three are not directly related to
supervisor xstates or CET, split them out and submit first. I will
re-submit supervisor xstate patches shortly.

When__fpu_restore_sig() fails, partially cleared FPU registers still belong
to the previous owner task. That causes that task to use corrupted xregs.
Fix it by doing __cpu_invalidate_fpregs_state() in functions that copy into
fpregs. Further details are in the commit log of patch #3.

[1] v1 of this series:

[2] Support XSAVES supervisor states

[3] CET patches:

Yu-cheng Yu (3):
x86/fpu/xstate: Fix small issues before adding supervisor xstates
x86/fpu/xstate: Make xfeature_is_supervisor()/xfeature_is_user()
return bool
x86/fpu/xstate: Invalidate fpregs when __fpu_restore_sig() fails
