Subject: SME/32-bit regression
Date: Tue, 5 Sep 2017 23:45:07 -0400
Message-ID: <4c07148a-5d97-0fc2-aa9b-1db31429736d@oracle.com> (raw)

It appears there is a regression for 32-bit kernels due to SME changes.

I bisected my particular problem (Xen PV guest) to 
21729f81ce8ae76a6995681d40e16f7ce8075db4 but I also saw pmd_clear_bad() 
errors on baremetal. This seems to be caused by sme_me_mask being an 
unsigned long as opposed to phys_addr_t (the actual problem is that 
__PHYSICAL_MASK is truncated). When I declare it as u64 and drop 
unsigned long cast in __sme_set()/__sme_clr() the problem goes way. 
(This presumably won't work for non-PAE which I haven't tried).
