[PATCH 31/75] x86, suspend: Handle CPUs which fail to #GP on RDMSR

From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Tue Jul 30 2013 - 11:20:51 EST -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: "H. Peter Anvin" <hpa@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 5ff560fd48d5b3d82fa0c3aff625c9da1a301911 upstream.

There are CPUs which have errata causing RDMSR of a nonexistent MSR to
not fault. We would then try to WRMSR to restore the value of that
MSR, causing a crash. Specifically, some Pentium M variants would
have this problem trying to save and restore the non-existent EFER,
causing a crash on resume.

Work around this by making sure we can write back the result at
suspend time.

Huge thanks to Christian SÃnkenberg for finding the offending erratum
that finally deciphered the mystery.
