Subject[PATCH] x86/cpufeatures: Add feature flag for fast short rep movsb
Date
From the Intel Optimization Reference Manual:

3.7.6.1 Fast Short REP MOVSB
Beginning with processors based on Ice Lake Client microarchitecture,
REP MOVSB performance of short operations is enhanced. The enhancement
applies to string lengths between 1 and 128 bytes long. Support for
fast-short REP MOVSB is enumerated by the CPUID feature flag: CPUID
[EAX=7H, ECX=0H).EDX.FAST_SHORT_REP_MOVSB[bit 4] = 1. There is no change
in the REP STOS performance.

Add an X86_FEATURE_FSRM flag for this.

Net effect of this patch is just to make "fsrm" appear in the
flags section of /proc/cpuinfo. Maybe someone can look into whether
we should make copy routines that use "rep movsb" check for this
flag to optimize copies on older CPUs that don't have it?
