Subject: [PATCH -mm 2/2] ELF: better codegen around current->mm
Date: Sun, 15 Dec 2019 15:47:55 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20191215124755.GB21124@avx2> (raw)

"current->mm" pointer is stable in general except few cases one of which
execve(2). Compiler can't treat is as stable but it _is_ stable most of
the time. During ELF loading process ->mm becomes stable right after
flush_old_exec().

Help compiler by caching current->mm, otherwise it continues to refetch it.

	add/remove: 0/0 grow/shrink: 0/2 up/down: 0/-141 (-141)
	Function                                     old     new   delta
	elf_core_dump                               5062    5039     -23
	load_elf_binary                             5426    5308    -118

Note: other cases are left as is because it is either pessimisation or
no change in binary size.
