Subject[PATCH 2/3] x86/asm: Move 'status' from thread_struct to thread_info
Date
The TS_COMPAT bit is very hot and is accessed from code paths that
mostly also touch thread_info::flags. Move it into struct
thread_info to improve cache locality.

The only reason it was in thread_struct is that there was a brief
period during which we didn't allow arch-specific fields in struct
thread_info.

Linus suggested further changing:

ti->status &= ~(TS_COMPAT|TS_I386_REGS_POKED);

to:

if (unlikely(ti->status & (TS_COMPAT|TS_I386_REGS_POKED)))
ti->status &= ~(TS_COMPAT|TS_I386_REGS_POKED);

on the theory that frequently dirtying the cacheline even in pure
64-bit code that never needs to modify status hurts performance.
That could be a reasonable followup patch, but I suspect it matters
less on top of this patch.
