... so I was holding off on doing anything with it.
Heh, and I was waiting for comments from you before doing anything further with it ;-)
Email review deadlock!
So, how do you plan to push ahead with this patch?
I think I got all the cases, as NMIs causes the store/restore functions to be re-entrent without any locks.
if you think you got all the cases, you can do more testing.
What is your concern?
I hope this patch will be included in 3.9.
The base address of the IDT doesn't generally change... the one
exception is when we do the funny NMI workaround.
For that reason, I would be happier if we just restored the standard
value instead of saving/restoring stuff.
