Subject[PATCH 4.12 46/52] x86/fsgsbase/64: Fully initialize FS and GS state in start_thread_common
Date
4.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Andy Lutomirski <luto@kernel.org>

commit 767d035d838f4fd6b5a5bbd7a3f6d293b7f65a49 upstream.

execve used to leak FSBASE and GSBASE on AMD CPUs. Fix it.

The security impact of this bug is small but not quite zero -- it
could weaken ASLR when a privileged task execs a less privileged
program, but only if program changed bitness across the exec, or the
child binary was highly unusual or actively malicious. A child
program that was compromised after the exec would not have access to
the leaked base.
