Subject: [PATCH] x86/cpufeature: Speedup cpu_feature_enabled()
Date: Tue, 16 Feb 2016 00:19:18 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1455578358-28347-1-git-send-email-bp@alien8.de> (raw)

From: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de>

When gcc cannot do constant folding for this macro, it falls back to
cpu_has(). But static_cpu_has() is optimal and it works at all times
now. So use it and speedup the fallback case.

Before we had this:

  mov    0x99d674(%rip),%rdx        # ffffffff81b0d9f4 <boot_cpu_data+0x34>
  shr    $0x2e,%rdx
  and    $0x1,%edx
  jne    ffffffff811704e9 <do_munmap+0x3f9>

After alternatives patching, it turns into:

		  jmp    0xffffffff81170390
		  nopl   (%rax)
		  ...
		  callq  ffffffff81056e00 <mpx_notify_unmap>
ffffffff81170390: mov    0x170(%r12),%rdi
