Subject: [PATCH 0/2] x86/entry: xorq->xorl; idtentry size reduction
Date: Wed, 14 Feb 2018 18:59:22 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

These two patches apply on top of tip/pti.

The first one cuts the idtentry macro as suggested by Linus.
I'm not sure whether this patch yet needs an explicit SOB by
him though. It was previously sent as RFC / testing only patch
"8/7" to the previous x86/entry-related series, cf.

The other one replaces the xorq-based register cleaning with an
equivalent xorl-based version, which is supposed to be faster on
some architectures.

  x86/entry: reduce static footprint of idtentry
  x86/entry/64: use xorl for register clearing
