Subject[RFC PATCH 1/2] x86: Introduce sync_core_before_usermode
Date
Introduce an architecture function that ensures the current CPU
issues a core serializing instruction before returning to usermode.

This is needed to fix an existing core serialization bug on
thread migration, and also needed by the membarrier "sync_core" command.

Architectures defining the sync_core_before_usermode() static inline
need to define ARCH_HAS_SYNC_CORE_BEFORE_USERMODE.
