Subject[PATCH 4.14 090/118] x86/pti: Unbreak EFI old_memmap
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jiri Kosina <jkosina@suse.cz>

commit de53c3786a3ce162a1c815d0c04c766c23ec9c0a upstream.

EFI_OLD_MEMMAP's efi_call_phys_prolog() calls set_pgd() with swapper PGD that
has PAGE_USER set, which makes PTI set NX on it, and therefore EFI can't
execute it's code.

Fix that by forcefully clearing _PAGE_NX from the PGD (this can't be done
by the pgprot API).

_PAGE_NX will be automatically reintroduced in efi_call_phys_epilog(), as
_set_pgd() will again notice that this is _PAGE_USER, and set _PAGE_NX on
it.
