Subject[PATCH 00/19] x86, mpx updates for 4.2 (take 8)

Changes from take 7 / v22:
* Add Thomas's reviewed-by
* merge with tip/x86/fpu changes
* Fix tiny spelling nit

Changes from take 6 / v21:
* Address a bunch of Thomas's review comments.

Changes from take 5 / v20:

* Fix get_xsave_addr() to consult xstate_bv in anticipation
of fixes to xsave code.
* Bug fix for when an VMA being unmapped has neighbors which
are bounds tables.
* Rewrite unmapping code. I didn't do this lightly. It was
not originally my own code, and I resisted changing it
because it worked. But, I started bug chasing and decided
it was unmaintainable. The rewrite ended up removing
about 20% of the unmapping code and made it much simpler.

Changes from take 4 / v19:

* Do not pass a task_struct around when we are
really just going to operate on current

Changes from take 3 / v18 (all minor):

the ranged tracepoints to save 10 lines of code.

Changes from take 2 / v17 (all minor):

* fix a couple of whitespace borkages caught by checkpatch,
and a spelling error or two.
* replace printk with pr_info() for boot disable
* change trace print format for address intervals
* fix up variable name in tsk_get_xsave_addr() comment
* remove tsk_get_xsave_field() GPL export
* fix up Qiaowei's From:


Hi x86 maintainers,

There are a few basic things going on here:
1. Make FPU/xsave code preempt safe and work properly
2. Add trace points to make kernel and app debugging easier
3. Add a boot-time disable for mpx
4. Rewrite the unmapping code.
5. Support 32-bit binaries to run on 64-bit kernels

This set is also available against tip/x86/fpu (8c05f05edb) in git:

git:// mpx-v23
