Subject[PATCH v8 0/2] Renovate memcpy_mcsafe with copy_mc_to_{user, kernel}
From
Date
Changes since v7 [1]:
- Rebased on v5.8-rc5 to resolve a conflict with commit eb25de276505
("tools arch: Update arch/x86/lib/memcpy_64.S copy used in 'perf bench
mem memcpy'")

[1]: http://lore.kernel.org/r/159408043801.2272533.17485467640602344900.stgit@dwillia2-desk3.amr.corp.intel.com

Vishal, since this patch set has experienced unprecedented silence from
x86 folks I expect you will need to send it to Linus directly during the
merge window. It merges cleanly with recent -next.

Thomas, Ingo, Boris, please chime in to save Vishal from that
awkwardness. I am only going to be sporadically online for the next few
weeks.

The primary motivation to go touch memcpy_mcsafe() is that the existing
benefit of doing slow and careful copies is obviated on newer CPUs. That
fact solves the problem of needing to detect machine-check recovery
capability. Now the old "mcsafe_key" opt-in to careful copying can be made
an opt-out from the default fast copy implementation.

The discussion with Linus further made clear that this facility had
already lost its x86-machine-check specificity starting with commit
2c89130a56a ("x86/asm/memcpy_mcsafe: Add write-protection-fault
handling"). The new changes to not require a "careful copy" further
de-emphasizes the role that x86-MCA plays in the implementation to just
one more source of recoverable trap during the operation.

With the above realizations the name "mcsafe" is no longer accurate and
copy_safe() is proposed as its replacement. x86 grows a copy_safe_fast()
implementation as a default implementation that is independent of
detecting the presence of x86-MCA.
