Subject: [PATCH entry v2 5/6] x86/ldt: Disable 16-bit segments on Xen PV
Date: Fri,  3 Jul 2020 10:02:57 -0700
Message-ID: <92b2975459dfe5929ecf34c3896ad920bd9e3f2d.1593795633.git.luto@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1593795633.git.luto@kernel.org>

Xen PV doesn't implement ESPFIX64, so they don't work right.  Disable
them.  Also print a warning the first time anyone tries to use a
16-bit segment on a Xen PV guest that would otherwise allow it
to help people diagnose this change in behavior.

This gets us closer to having all x86 selftests pass on Xen PV.
