Subject: [PATCH] exec: move struct linux_binprm::buf
Date: Sun, 21 Apr 2019 19:50:25 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20190421165025.GA26843@avx2> (raw)

struct linux_binprm::buf is the first field and it is exactly 128 bytes
in size. It means that on x86_64 all accesses to other fields will go
though [r64 + disp32] addressing mode which is 3 bytes bloatier than
[r64 + disp8] addressing mode. Given that accesses to other fields
outnumber accesses to ->buf, move it down.

Space savings (x86_64 defconfig):
more on distro configs because LSMs actively dereference "bprm"
but do not care about first 128 bytes of the executable itself.
