Subject: [PATCH 03/27] x86/fpu: Remove preempt_disable() in fpu__clear()
Date: Wed,  3 Apr 2019 18:41:32 +0200
Message-ID: <20190403164156.19645-4-bigeasy@linutronix.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190403164156.19645-1-bigeasy@linutronix.de>

The preempt_disable() section was introduced in commit

  a10b6a16cdad8 ("x86/fpu: Make the fpu state change in fpu__clear() scheduler-atomic")

and it was said to be temporary.

fpu__initialize() initializes the FPU struct to its "init" value and
then sets ->initialized to 1. The last part is the important one.
The content of the `state' does not matter because it gets set via
copy_init_fpstate_to_fpregs().
A preemption here has little meaning because the registers will always be
set to the same content after copy_init_fpstate_to_fpregs(). A softirq
with a kernel_fpu_begin() could also force to save FPU's registers after
fpu__initialize() without changing the outcome here.

Remove the preempt_disable() section in fpu__clear(), preemption here
does not hurt.
