Subject: [PATCH 30/33] x86/fpu: Fix stale comments about lazy FPU logic
Date: Sat, 23 Sep 2017 15:00:13 +0200
Message-ID: <20170923130016.21448-31-mingo@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20170923130016.21448-1-mingo@kernel.org>

We don't do any lazy restore anymore, what we have are two pieces of optimization:

 - no-FPU tasks that don't save/restore the FPU context (kernel threads are such)

 - cached FPU registers maintained via the fpu->last_cpu field. This means that
   if an FPU task context switches to a non-FPU task then we can maintain the
   FPU registers as an in-FPU copies (cache), and skip the restoration of them
   once we switch back to the original FPU-using task.

Update all the comments that still referred to old 'lazy' and 'unlazy' concepts.
