Subject[PATCH v3 1/2] x86/cpufeatures: Enumerate TSX suspend load address tracking instructions
From: Kyung Min Park <>

Intel TSX suspend load tracking instructions aim to give a way to
choose which memory accesses do not need to be tracked in the TSX
read set. Add TSX suspend load tracking CPUID feature flag TSXLDTRK
for enumeration.

A processor supports Intel TSX suspend load address tracking if
CPUID.0x07.0x0:EDX[16] is present. Two instructions XSUSLDTRK, XRESLDTRK
are available when this feature is present.

The CPU feature flag is shown as "tsxldtrk" in /proc/cpuinfo.

This instruction is currently documented in the the latest "extensions"
manual (ISE). It will appear in the "main" manual (SDM) in the future.

Changes since v2:
* Shorten documentation names for readability. Links to documentation
can be found in the cover letter. (Dave Hansen)
