Subject[PATCH v3 Bugfix 4/6] x86/xsave: Don't add new states in xsave_struct
Date
From: Fenghua Yu <fenghua.yu@intel.com>

The structure of xsave_struct is non-architectural. Some xstates could be
disabled and leave some holes in the xsave area. In compact format,
offsets of xstates in the xsave area are decided during booting time.

So the fields in xsave_struct are not static and fixed during compilation
time. The offsets and sizes of the fields in the structure should be
detected from cpuid during runtime.

Therefore, we don't add new states in xsave_struct except legacy fpu/sse
states and header fields whose offsets and sizes are defined
architecturally.
