Subject[PATCH 2/3] x86: make 64 bit ret_from_fork a little more similar to 32 bit
Date
The 64 bit version resets EFLAGS before calling schedule_tail() and
therefore leaves EFLAGS.IF clear. 32 bit resets EFLAGS after calling
schedule_tail() and therefore leaves EFLAGS.IF set. I don't think
there is any practical difference between the two approaches since
interrupts are actually reenabled within schedule_tail
(schedule_tail->finish_task_switch->finish_lock_switch->raw_spin_unlock_irq->...->local_irq_enable)
so arbitrarily pick the 32 bit version and make 64 bit look like that.
