[PATCH 4.14 85/91] x86/smpboot: Dont use mwait_play_dead() on AMD systems

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

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


From: Yazen Ghannam <yazen.ghannam@xxxxxxx>

commit da6fa7ef67f07108a1b0cb9fd9e7fcaabd39c051 upstream.

Recent AMD systems support using MWAIT for C1 state. However, MWAIT will
not allow deeper cstates than C1 on current systems.

play_dead() expects to use the deepest state available. The deepest state
available on AMD systems is reached through SystemIO or HALT. If MWAIT is
available, it is preferred over the other methods, so the CPU never reaches
the deepest possible state.

Don't try to use MWAIT to play_dead() on AMD systems. Instead, use CPUIDLE
to enter the deepest state advertised by firmware. If CPUIDLE is not
available then fallback to HALT.
