Subject[RESEND PATCH v6 00/12] x86: Enable FSGSBASE instructions
Date
Updates from v5 [5]:
* Drop the new tain flag (TAINT_INSECURE)
* Cleanup copy_thread_tls(), some changelog, and unnecessary comments on
assembly macros
* Rearrange some helper updates appropriately (from patch 4 to 6)

Updates from v4 [4]:
* Remove the FSGSBASE assembly macros

Updates from v3 [3]:
* Raise minimum binutils requirement to use the new instructions directly
* Optimize FIND_PERCPU_BASE macro
* Rename some helper functions, __{rd,wr}gsbase_inactive()
* Use NOKPROBE_SYMBOL instead of __kprobes
* Rebase on top of the helper function fix [7]

Update from v2 [2]:
* Separate out the preparatory patches [6] (merged as of now)
* Bisect the paranoid_entry update patch
* Edit minor nits
