[PATCH 3.16 153/306] powerpc: Convert cmp to cmpd in idle enter sequence

From: Ben Hutchings
Date: Wed Feb 15 2017 - 18:36:56 EST

3.16.40-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Segher Boessenkool <segher@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 80f23935cadb1c654e81951f5a8b7ceae0acc1b4 upstream.

PowerPC's "cmp" instruction has four operands. Normally people write
"cmpw" or "cmpd" for the second cmp operand 0 or 1. But, frequently
people forget, and write "cmp" with just three operands.

With older binutils this is silently accepted as if this was "cmpw",
while often "cmpd" is wanted. With newer binutils GAS will complain
about this for 64-bit code. For 32-bit code it still silently assumes
"cmpw" is what is meant.

In this instance the code comes directly from ISA v2.07, including the
cmp, but cmpd is correct. Backport to stable so that new toolchains can
build old kernels.
