Subject: [PATCH v3 0/7] x86: infrastructure to enable FSGSBASE
Date: Thu,  7 Jun 2018 10:06:01 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1528391168-22224-1-git-send-email-chang.seok.bae@intel.com> (raw)

Given feedbacks from [1], it was asked to make first a few
patches ready as soon as possible. To make FSGSBASE facilitated,
some helper functions and refactoring work are incorporated.
Besides that, it includes Andy's fix for accurate FS/GS base read
and cleanup for the vDSO initialization.

Changes from V2 [3]:
* Bisect the CPU number initialization patch
* Drop patches for introducing i386 CPU_NUMBER and switching
write_rdtscp_aux() to use wrmsr_safe()

Changes from V1 [2]:
* Rename the x86-64 CPU_NUMBER segment from PER_CPU
* Add i386 CPU_NUMBER equivalent to x86-64 at GDT entry 23
* Add additional helper function to store CPU number
* Switch write_rdtscp_aux() to use wrmsr_safe()
