SubjectRe: [PATCH] x86/smap: Fix the smap_save() asm

After looking at

"Figure 3.3: Stack Frame with Base Pointer"

in the x86-64 ABI doc, you're probably right:

0(%rbp)
-8(%rbp)
...
0(%rsp)
.. red zone
-128(%rsp)

i.e., rsp-relative addresses with negative offsets are in the red zone.
So it looks like the compiler actually knows very well what's going on
here and allocates room on the stack for that 0x8(%rsp) slot.

Good.
