Hi all-

In a previous incarnation of these patches, I complained about the use of SWAPGS in the paranoid path. Now I’m putting my maintainer foot down. On a non-FSGSBASE system, the paranoid path known, definitively, which GS is where, so SWAPGS is annoying. With FSGSBASE, unless you start looking at the RIP that you interrupted, you cannot know whether you have user or kernel GSBASE live, since they can have literally the same value. One of the numerous versions of this patch compared the values and just said “well, it’s harmless to SWAPGS if user code happens to use the same value as the kernel”. I complained that it was far too fragile.

So I’m putting my foot down. If you all want my ack, you’re going to save the old GS, load the new one with WRGSBASE, and, on return, you’re going to restore the old one with WRGSBASE. You will not use SWAPGS in the paranoid path.

Obviously, for the non-paranoid path, it all keeps working exactly like it does now.

Furthermore, if you folks even want me to review this series, the ptrace tests need to be in place. On inspection of the current code (after the debacle a few releases back), it appears the SETREGSET’s effect depends on the current values in the registers — it does not actually seem to reliably load the whole state. So my confidence will be greatly increased if your series first adds a test that detects that bug (and fails!), then fixes the bug in a tiny little patch, then adds FSGSBASE, and keeps the test working.
