Subject[PATCH 5.1 058/128] bpf, arm64: remove prefetch insn in xadd mapping
Date
From: Daniel Borkmann <daniel@iogearbox.net>

commit 8968c67a82ab7501bc3b9439c3624a49b42fe54c upstream.

Prefetch-with-intent-to-write is currently part of the XADD mapping in
the AArch64 JIT and follows the kernel's implementation of atomic_add.
This may interfere with other threads executing the LDXR/STXR loop,
leading to potential starvation and fairness issues. Drop the optional
prefetch instruction.

Fixes: 85f68fe89832 ("bpf, arm64: implement jiting of BPF_XADD")
