ARCv2: entry: push out the Z flag unclobber from common EXCEPTION_PROLOGUE
Upon a taken interrupt/exception from User mode, HS hardware auto sets Z flag. This helps shave a few instructions from EXCEPTION_PROLOGUE by eliding re-reading ERSTATUS and some bit fiddling. However TLB Miss Exception handler can clobber the CPU flags and still end up in EXCEPTION_PROLOGUE in the slow path handling TLB handling case: EV_TLBMissD do_slow_path_pf EV_TLBProtV (aliased to call_do_page_fault) EXCEPTION_PROLOGUE As a result, EXCEPTION_PROLOGUE need to "unclobber" the Z flag which this patch changes. It is now pushed out to TLB Miss Exception handler. The reasons beings: - The flag restoration is only needed for slowpath TLB Miss Exception handling, but currently being in EXCEPTION_PROLOGUE penalizes all exceptions such as ProtV and syscall Trap, where Z flag is already as expected. - Pushing unclobber out to where it was clobbered is much cleaner and also serves to document the fact. - Makes EXCEPTION_PROLGUE similar to INTERRUPT_PROLOGUE so easier to refactor the common parts which is what this series aims to do Signed-off-by: Vineet Gupta <vgupta@synopsys.com>
