Subject[PATCH 1/5] context_tracking: generalize context tracking APIs to support user and guest
Date
From: Rik van Riel <riel@redhat.com>

Split out the mechanism from context_tracking_user_enter and
context_tracking_user_exit into context_tracking_enter and
context_tracking_exit. Leave the old functions in order to avoid
breaking ARM, which calls these functions from assembler code,
and cannot easily use C enum parameters.

Add the expected ctx_state as a parameter to context_tracking_enter and
context_tracking_exit, allowing the same functions to not just track
kernel <> user space switching, but also kernel <> guest transitions.

Signed-off-by: Rik van Riel <riel@redhat.com>
