Subject[PATCH 4.3 080/125] arm64: Fix compat register mappings
4.3-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Robin Murphy <>

commit 5accd17d0eb523350c9ef754d655e379c9bb93b3 upstream.

For reasons not entirely apparent, but now enshrined in history, the
architectural mapping of AArch32 banked registers to AArch64 registers
actually orders SP_<mode> and LR_<mode> backwards compared to the
intuitive r13/r14 order, for all modes except FIQ.

Fix the compat_<reg>_<mode> macros accordingly, in the hope of avoiding
subtle bugs with KVM and AArch32 guests.
