[PATCH v9 29/29] selftests/x86: Add tests for instruction str and sldt

From: Ricardo Neri
Date: Tue Oct 03 2017 - 23:56:59 EST

The instructions str and sldt are not recognized when running on virtual-
8086 mode and generate an invalid operand exception. These two
instructions are protected by the Intel User-Mode Instruction Prevention
(UMIP) security feature. In protected mode, if UMIP is enabled, these
instructions generate a general protection fault if called from CPL > 0.
Linux traps the general protection fault and emulates the instructions
sgdt, sidt and smsw; but not str and sldt.

These tests are added to verify that the emulation code does not emulate
these two instructions but the expected invalid operand exception is

Tests fallback to exit with int3 in case emulation does happen.
