4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Andy Lutomirski <luto@kernel.org>

[ Upstream commit d60ad744c9741586010d4bea286f09a063a90fbd ]

Bits 19:16 of LAR's result are undefined, and some upcoming
improvements to the test case seem to trigger this.  Mask off those
bits to avoid spurious failures.

commit 5b781c7e317f ("x86/tls: Forcibly set the accessed bit in TLS
segments") adds a valid case in which LAR's output doesn't quite
agree with set_thread_area()'s input.  This isn't triggered in the
test as is, but it will be if we start calling set_thread_area()
with the accessed bit clear.  Work around this discrepency.

I've added a Fixes tag so that -stable can pick this up if neccesary.
