Subject[PATCH 4.9 35/92] x86/retpoline: Remove the esp/rsp thunk
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Waiman Long <longman@redhat.com>

(cherry picked from commit 1df37383a8aeabb9b418698f0bcdffea01f4b1b2)

It doesn't make sense to have an indirect call thunk with esp/rsp as
retpoline code won't work correctly with the stack pointer register.
Removing it will help compiler writers to catch error in case such
a thunk call is emitted incorrectly.

Fixes: 76b043848fd2 ("x86/retpoline: Add initial retpoline support")
