Subject[PATCH 06/31] x86/entry/32: Split off return-to-kernel path
Date
From: Joerg Roedel <jroedel@suse.de>

Use a separate return path when we know we are returning to
the kernel. This allows us to put the PTI cr3-switch and the
switch to the entry-stack into the return-to-user path
without further checking.
