Merge branch 'x86-fpu-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip
Pull x86 FPU state handling updates from Borislav Petkov: "This contains work started by Rik van Riel and brought to fruition by Sebastian Andrzej Siewior with the main goal to optimize when to load FPU registers: only when returning to userspace and not on every context switch (while the task remains in the kernel). In addition, this optimization makes kernel_fpu_begin() cheaper by requiring registers saving only on the first invocation and skipping that in following ones. What is more, this series cleans up and streamlines many aspects of the already complex FPU code, hopefully making it more palatable for future improvements and simplifications. Finally, there's a __user annotations fix from Jann Horn" * 'x86-fpu-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: (29 commits) x86/fpu: Fault-in user stack if copy_fpstate_to_sigframe() fails x86/pkeys: Add PKRU value to init_fpstate x86/fpu: Restore regs in copy_fpstate_to_sigframe() in order to use the fastpath x86/fpu: Add a fastpath to copy_fpstate_to_sigframe() x86/fpu: Add a fastpath to __fpu__restore_sig() x86/fpu: Defer FPU state load until return to userspace x86/fpu: Merge the two code paths in __fpu__restore_sig() x86/fpu: Restore from kernel memory on the 64-bit path too x86/fpu: Inline copy_user_to_fpregs_zeroing() x86/fpu: Update xstate's PKRU value on write_pkru() x86/fpu: Prepare copy_fpstate_to_sigframe() for TIF_NEED_FPU_LOAD x86/fpu: Always store the registers in copy_fpstate_to_sigframe() x86/entry: Add TIF_NEED_FPU_LOAD x86/fpu: Eager switch PKRU state x86/pkeys: Don't check if PKRU is zero before writing it x86/fpu: Only write PKRU if it is different from current x86/pkeys: Provide *pkru() helpers x86/fpu: Use a feature number instead of mask in two more helpers x86/fpu: Make __raw_xsave_addr() use a feature number instead of mask x86/fpu: Add an __fpregs_load_activate() internal helper ...
