Subject[PATCH 00/16] MSA vector context signal handling & HWCAPs
This series provides the final bits of support for MSA as far as
userland that isn't a debugger goes. In order to preserve backwards
compatibility it saves the extended vector context after the end of the
sigframe or ucontext, at a fixed offset. A bit set in sigcontext's
sc_used_math field indicates to userland (and to the kernel on
sigreturn) that the extended context is present.

With these final bits in, the presence of MSA support is indicated via a
HWCAP bit that userland may check for.

Paul Burton (16):
MIPS: remove outdated comments in sigcontext.h
MIPS: simplify EVA FP context handling code
MIPS: add offsets to sigcontext FP fields to struct mips_abi
MIPS: use struct mips_abi offsets to save FP context
MIPS: move FP usage checks into protected_{save,restore}_fp_context
MIPS: skip odd double FP registers when copying FP32 sigcontext
MIPS: use common FP sigcontext code for O32 compat
MIPS: remove unused {get,put}_sigset functions
MIPS: indicate FP mode in sigcontext sc_used_math
MIPS: add definitions for extended context
MIPS: save MSA extended context around signals
MIPS: AT_HWCAP aux vector infrastructure
MIPS: advertise MIPSr6 via HWCAP when appropriate
MIPS: advertise MSA support via HWCAP when present
MIPS: require O32 FP64 support for MIPS64 with O32 compat
MIPS: drop EXPERIMENTAL tag from O32+FP64 & MSA
