Subject[PATCH 4.9 75/96] x86/cpu/AMD: Make LFENCE a serializing instruction
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Tom Lendacky <thomas.lendacky@amd.com>

commit e4d0e84e490790798691aaa0f2e598637f1867ec upstream.

To aid in speculation control, make LFENCE a serializing instruction
since it has less overhead than MFENCE. This is done by setting bit 1
of MSR 0xc0011029 (DE_CFG). Some families that support LFENCE do not
have this MSR. For these families, the LFENCE instruction is already
serializing.
