Subject[PATCH 07/31] x86/entry/32: Restore segments before int registers
Date
From: Joerg Roedel <jroedel@suse.de>

Restoring the segments can cause exceptions that need to be
handled. With PTI enabled, we still need to be on kernel cr3
when the exception happens. For the cr3-switch we need
at least one integer scratch register, so we can't switch
with the user integer registers already loaded.

Avoid a push/pop cycle to free a register for the cr3 switch
by restoring the segments first. That way the integer
registers are not live yet and we can use them for the cr3
switch.

This also helps in the NMI path, where we need to leave with
the same cr3 as we entered. There we still have the
callee-saved registers live when switching cr3s.
