Subject[PATCH 5.1 020/128] sched/x86: Save [ER]FLAGS on context switch
Date
From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

commit 6690e86be83ac75832e461c141055b5d601c0a6d upstream.

Effectively reverts commit:

2c7577a75837 ("sched/x86_64: Don't save flags on context switch")

Specifically because SMAP uses FLAGS.AC which invalidates the claim
that the kernel has clean flags.

In particular; while preemption from interrupt return is fine (the
IRET frame on the exception stack contains FLAGS) it breaks any code
that does synchonous scheduling, including preempt_enable().

This has become a significant issue ever since commit:

5b24a7a2aa20 ("Add 'unsafe' user access functions for batched accesses")

provided for means of having 'normal' C code between STAC / CLAC,
exposing the FLAGS.AC state. So far this hasn't led to trouble,
however fix it before it comes apart.
