x86/fpu: Restore the masking out of reserved MXCSR bits
Ser Olmy reported a boot failure: init[1] bad frame in sigreturn frame:(ptrval) ip:b7c9fbe6 sp:bf933310 orax:ffffffff \ in libc-2.33.so[b7bed000+156000] Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x0000000b CPU: 0 PID: 1 Comm: init Tainted: G W 5.14.9 #1 Hardware name: Hewlett-Packard HP PC/HP Board, BIOS JD.00.06 12/06/2001 Call Trace: dump_stack_lvl dump_stack panic do_exit.cold do_group_exit get_signal arch_do_signal_or_restart ? force_sig_info_to_task ? force_sig exit_to_user_mode_prepare syscall_exit_to_user_mode do_int80_syscall_32 entry_INT80_32 on an old 32-bit Intel CPU: vendor_id : GenuineIntel cpu family : 6 model : 6 model name : Celeron (Mendocino) stepping : 5 microcode : 0x3 Ser bisected the problem to the commit in Fixes. tglx suggested reverting the rejection of invalid MXCSR values which this commit introduced and replacing it with what the old code did - simply masking them out to zero. Further debugging confirmed his suggestion: fpu->state.fxsave.mxcsr: 0xb7be13b4, mxcsr_feature_mask: 0xffbf WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 1 at arch/x86/kernel/fpu/signal.c:384 __fpu_restore_sig+0x51f/0x540 so restore the original behavior only for 32-bit kernels where you have ancient machines with buggy hardware. For 32-bit programs on 64-bit kernels, user space which supplies wrong MXCSR values is considered malicious so fail the sigframe restoration there.
