Subject[PATCH 4.9 168/171] x86/percpu: Fix this_cpu_read()
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

commit b59167ac7bafd804c91e49ad53c6d33a7394d4c8 upstream.

Eric reported that a sequence count loop using this_cpu_read() got
optimized out. This is wrong, this_cpu_read() must imply READ_ONCE()
because the interface is IRQ-safe, therefore an interrupt can have
changed the per-cpu value.

Fixes: 7c3576d261ce ("[PATCH] i386: Convert PDA into the percpu section")
