[PATCH 4.4 47/50] MIPS: smp.c: Fix uninitialised temp_foreign_map

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Mar 14 2016 - 14:00:26 EST

4.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: James Hogan <james.hogan@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit d825c06bfe8b885b797f917ad47365d0e9c21fbb upstream.

When calculate_cpu_foreign_map() recalculates the cpu_foreign_map
cpumask it uses the local variable temp_foreign_map without initialising
it to zero. Since the calculation only ever sets bits in this cpumask
any existing bits at that memory location will remain set and find their
way into cpu_foreign_map too. This could potentially lead to cache
operations suboptimally doing smp calls to multiple VPEs in the same
core, even though the VPEs share primary caches.

Therefore initialise temp_foreign_map using cpumask_clear() before use.
