Merge branch 'x86-urgent-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip
Pull x86 fixes from Thomas Gleixner: "A set of fixes and updates for x86: - Address a swiotlb regression which was caused by the recent DMA rework and made driver fail because dma_direct_supported() returned false - Fix a signedness bug in the APIC ID validation which caused invalid APIC IDs to be detected as valid thereby bloating the CPU possible space. - Fix inconsisten config dependcy/select magic for the MFD_CS5535 driver. - Fix a corruption of the physical address space bits when encryption has reduced the address space and late cpuinfo updates overwrite the reduced bit information with the original value. - Dominiks syscall rework which consolidates the architecture specific syscall functions so all syscalls can be wrapped with the same macros. This allows to switch x86/64 to struct pt_regs based syscalls. Extend the clearing of user space controlled registers in the entry patch to the lower registers" * 'x86-urgent-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: x86/apic: Fix signedness bug in APIC ID validity checks x86/cpu: Prevent cpuinfo_x86::x86_phys_bits adjustment corruption x86/olpc: Fix inconsistent MFD_CS5535 configuration swiotlb: Use dma_direct_supported() for swiotlb_ops syscalls/x86: Adapt syscall_wrapper.h to the new syscall stub naming convention syscalls/core, syscalls/x86: Rename struct pt_regs-based sys_*() to __x64_sys_*() syscalls/core, syscalls/x86: Clean up compat syscall stub naming convention syscalls/core, syscalls/x86: Clean up syscall stub naming convention syscalls/x86: Extend register clearing on syscall entry to lower registers syscalls/x86: Unconditionally enable 'struct pt_regs' based syscalls on x86_64 syscalls/x86: Use 'struct pt_regs' based syscall calling for IA32_EMULATION and x32 syscalls/core: Prepare CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_SYSCALL_WRAPPER=y for compat syscalls syscalls/x86: Use 'struct pt_regs' based syscall calling convention for 64-bit syscalls syscalls/core: Introduce CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_SYSCALL_WRAPPER=y x86/syscalls: Don't pointlessly reload the system call number x86/mm: Fix documentation of module mapping range with 4-level paging x86/cpuid: Switch to 'static const' specifier
