Subject[PATCH] x86/paravirt: Apply paravirt instructions in consistent order during boot/module load
Date
Commit 4e6292114c74 ("x86/paravirt: Add new features for paravirt
patching") changed the order in which altinstructions and paravirt
instructions are patched at boot time. However, no analogous change was
made in module_finalize, where we apply altinstructions and
parainstructions during module load.

As a result, any code that generates "stacked up" altinstructions and
parainstructions (i.e. local_irq_save/restore) will produce different
results when used in built-in kernel code vs. kernel modules. This also
makes it possible to inadvertently replace altinstructions in the booted
kernel with their parainstruction counterparts when using
livepatch/kpatch.

To fix this, re-order the processing in module_finalize, so that we do
things in this order:

1. apply_paravirt
2. apply_retpolines
3. apply_alternatives
4. alternatives_smp_module_add

This is the same ordering that is used at boot time in
alternative_instructions.
