Subject[RFC v2 PATCH 4/7] x86/entry: introduce PUSH_AND_CLEAN_REGS
Date
Those instances where ALLOC_PT_GPREGS_ON_STACK is called just before
SAVE_AND_CLEAR_REGS can trivially be replaced by PUSH_AND_CLEAN_REGS.
This macro uses PUSH instead of MOV and should therefore be faster, at
least on newer CPUs.
