[PATCH v9 27/29] x86/traps: Fixup general protection faults caused by UMIP

From: Ricardo Neri
Date: Tue Oct 03 2017 - 23:56:38 EST

If the User-Mode Instruction Prevention CPU feature is available and
enabled, a general protection fault will be issued if the instructions
sgdt, sldt, sidt, str or smsw are executed from user-mode context
(CPL > 0). If the fault was caused by any of the instructions protected
by UMIP, fixup_umip_exception() will emulate dummy results for these
instructions as follows: if running a 32-bit process, sgdt, sidt and smsw
are emulated; str and sldt are not emulated. No emulation is done for
64-bit processes.

If emulation is successful, the result is passed to the user space program
and no SIGSEGV signal is emitted.

Please note that fixup_umip_exception() also caters for the case when
the fault originated while running in virtual-8086 mode.
