SubjectAVX register corruption from signal delivery
Date
Hi -

The Go Team found a bug[1] where the AVX registers can get corrupted
during signal delivery. They were able to bisect it to commits related
to the "x86: load FPU registers on return to userland" patchset[2].

The bug requires the kernel to be built with GCC 9 to trigger. In
particular, arch/x86/kernel/fpu/signal.c needs to be built with GCC 9.

Thanks,

Barret
