Subject[PATCH 4.14 140/146] x86/mm: Remove preempt_disable/enable() from __native_flush_tlb()
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

commit decab0888e6e14e11d53cefa85f8b3d3b45ce73c upstream.

The preempt_disable/enable() pair in __native_flush_tlb() was added in
commit:

5cf0791da5c1 ("x86/mm: Disable preemption during CR3 read+write")

... to protect the UP variant of flush_tlb_mm_range().

That preempt_disable/enable() pair should have been added to the UP variant
of flush_tlb_mm_range() instead.

The UP variant was removed with commit:

ce4a4e565f52 ("x86/mm: Remove the UP asm/tlbflush.h code, always use the (formerly) SMP code")

... but the preempt_disable/enable() pair stayed around.

The latest change to __native_flush_tlb() in commit:

6fd166aae78c ("x86/mm: Use/Fix PCID to optimize user/kernel switches")

... added an access to a per CPU variable outside the preempt disabled
regions, which makes no sense at all. __native_flush_tlb() must always
be called with at least preemption disabled.

Remove the preempt_disable/enable() pair and add a WARN_ON_ONCE() to catch
bad callers independent of the smp_processor_id() debugging.
