Subject: [PATCH 4.14 43/80] s390: enable CPU alternatives unconditionally
Date: Fri, 27 Apr 2018 15:58:36 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180427135735.137254532@linuxfoundation.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180427135732.928644313@linuxfoundation.org>

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

------------------

From: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com>


From: Heiko Carstens <heiko.carstens@de.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit 049a2c2d486e8cc82c5cd79fa479c5b105b109e9 ]

Remove the CPU_ALTERNATIVES config option and enable the code
unconditionally. The config option was only added to avoid a conflict
with the named saved segment support. Since that code is gone there is
no reason to keep the CPU_ALTERNATIVES config option.

Just enable it unconditionally to also reduce the number of config
options and make it less likely that something breaks.
