Subject: [PATCH v2] x86/fpu: Revert earlier patch of Disable AVX when eagerfpu is off
Date: Wed,  9 Mar 2016 16:28:54 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1457569734-3785-1-git-send-email-yu-cheng.yu@intel.com> (raw)

Because AVX is not stated in CR0 TS bit description, it was mistakenly
believed to be not supported for lazy context switch. This turns out to be
false. The earlier patch should be reverted.

Reference [1]:

Intel Software Developer's Manual Vol. 3A, Sec. 2.5 Control Registers:
TS Task Switched bit (bit 3 of CR0) -- Allows the saving of the x87 FPU/
MMX/SSE/SSE2/SSE3/SSSE3/SSE4 context on a task switch to be delayed until
an x87 FPU/MMX/SSE/SSE2/SSE3/SSSE3/SSE4 instruction is actually executed
by the new task.

Reference [2]:

Intel Software Developer's Manual Vol. 2A, Sec. 2.4 Instruction Exception
Specification. AVX instructions refer to exceptions by classes that
include #NM "Device Not Available" exception for lazy context switch.

Original patch:
    commit 394db20ca240741a08d472173db13d6f6a6e5a28 ("x86/fpu: Disable AVX
           when eagerfpu is off")
