Merge branch 'x86-pti-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linu…
…x/kernel/git/tip/tip Pull x86 page table isolation fixes from Thomas Gleixner: "A couple of urgent fixes for PTI: - Fix a PTE mismatch between user and kernel visible mapping of the cpu entry area (differs vs. the GLB bit) and causes a TLB mismatch MCE on older AMD K8 machines - Fix the misplaced CR3 switch in the SYSCALL compat entry code which causes access to unmapped kernel memory resulting in double faults. - Fix the section mismatch of the cpu_tss_rw percpu storage caused by using a different mechanism for declaration and definition. - Two fixes for dumpstack which help to decode entry stack issues better - Enable PTI by default in Kconfig. We should have done that earlier, but it slipped through the cracks. - Exclude AMD from the PTI enforcement. Not necessarily a fix, but if AMD is so confident that they are not affected, then we should not burden users with the overhead" * 'x86-pti-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: x86/process: Define cpu_tss_rw in same section as declaration x86/pti: Switch to kernel CR3 at early in entry_SYSCALL_compat() x86/dumpstack: Print registers for first stack frame x86/dumpstack: Fix partial register dumps x86/pti: Make sure the user/kernel PTEs match x86/cpu, x86/pti: Do not enable PTI on AMD processors x86/pti: Enable PTI by default
