[PATCH] x86/fpu/xstate: Fix xcomp_bv in XSAVES header

From: Yu-cheng Yu
Date: Thu Feb 16 2017 - 17:20:03 EST

This is essentially the same patch as:

commit dffba9a31c77 ("x86/fpu/xstate: Fix xcomp_bv in XSAVES header")

in the upstream tree, rebased and tested for the stable tree.
This can be applied to both linux-stable-rc/linux-4.9.y and
linux-stable-rc/linux-4.8.y if desired.

The compacted-format XSAVES area is determined at boot time and
never changed after. The field xsave.header.xcomp_bv indicates
which components are in the fixed XSAVES format.

In fpstate_init() we did not set xcomp_bv to reflect the XSAVES
format since at the time there is no valid data.

However, after we do copy_init_fpstate_to_fpregs() in fpu__clear(),
as in commit

b22cbe404a9c ("x86/fpu: Fix invalid FPU ptrace state after execve()")

and when __fpu_restore_sig() does fpu__restore() for a COMPAT-mode
app, a #GP occurs. This can be easily triggered by doing valgrind on
a COMPAT-mode "Hello World," as reported by Joakim Tjernlund and


Fix it by setting xcomp_bv correctly.
