Subject: Re: [PATCH 17/24] x86/entry: Introduce struct ist_regs
Date: Thu, 09 Sep 2021 21:51:55 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <4C8A910F-679F-4F49-AAA5-AA3B9BE5F2BD@zytor.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <286DCB70-B36E-4229-966E-BE45F2AEA703@zytor.com>

Note: with FRED paranoid entry is no longer needed since the hardware enforces gs_base mode consistency.
