[PATCH 01/19] x86, mpx, xsave: fix up bad get_xsave_addr() assumptions
From: Dave Hansen
Date: Fri May 08 2015 - 15:05:07 EST
From: Dave Hansen <dave.hansen@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
get_xsave_addr() assumes that if an xsave bit is present in the
hardware (pcntxt_mask) that it is present in a given xsave
buffer. Due to an bug in the xsave code on all of the systems
that have MPX (and thus all the users of this code), that has
been a true assumption.
But, the bug is getting fixed, so our assumption is not going
to hold any more.
It's quite possible (and normal) for an enabled state to be
present on 'pcntxt_mask', but *not* in 'xstate_bv'. We need
to consult 'xstate_bv'.
