[PATCH v3 0/7] arm64: Support for systems without AArch32 state
From: Suzuki K Poulose
Date: Thu Mar 31 2016 - 13:28:01 EST
This series add checks to make sure that the AArch32 state is
supported before we process the 32bit ID registers. Also
checks the same for COMPAT binary execution.
Applies on top of 4.6-rc1. The series remains unchanged from V3, except
Changes since V2:
- Rebased to 4.6-rc1
- Drop redundant KVM check introduced in V1.
Changes since V1:
- Prevent changing the personality to PER_LINUX32 by adding
wrapper for personality() syscall.
- Add the check to KVM before initialising a AArch32 vcpu
- Tested on hardware.
Btw, linux32 doesn't complain when the personality() syscall fails to change
to PER_LINUX32. You can verify the personality by running
$ cat /proc/cpuinfo
which would still list the 64bit features for the CPUs.
