Subject[PATCH 3.16 089/136] MIPS: tlbex: Fix build_restore_pagemask KScratch restore
3.16.80-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Paul Burton <paulburton@kernel.org>

commit b42aa3fd5957e4daf4b69129e5ce752a2a53e7d6 upstream.

build_restore_pagemask() will restore the value of register $1/$at when
its restore_scratch argument is non-zero, and aims to do so by filling a
branch delay slot. Commit 0b24cae4d535 ("MIPS: Add missing EHB in mtc0
-> mfc0 sequence.") added an EHB instruction (Execution Hazard Barrier)
prior to restoring $1 from a KScratch register, in order to resolve a
hazard that can result in stale values of the KScratch register being
observed. In particular, P-class CPUs from MIPS with out of order
execution pipelines such as the P5600 & P6600 are affected.

Unfortunately this EHB instruction was inserted in the branch delay slot
causing the MFC0 instruction which performs the restoration to no longer
execute along with the branch. The result is that the $1 register isn't
actually restored, ie. the TLB refill exception handler clobbers it -
which is exactly the problem the EHB is meant to avoid for the P-class
CPUs.

Similarly build_get_pgd_vmalloc() will restore the value of $1/$at when
its mode argument equals refill_scratch, and suffers from the same
problem.

Fix this by in both cases moving the EHB earlier in the emitted code.
There's no reason it needs to immediately precede the MFC0 - it simply
needs to be between the MTC0 & MFC0.

This bug only affects Cavium Octeon systems which use
build_fast_tlb_refill_handler().
