Subject[PATCH V4 0/6] x86: Don't abuse tss.sp1
From: Lai Jiangshan <>

In x86_64, tss.sp1 is reused as cpu_current_top_of_stack. We'd better
directly use percpu since CR3 and gs_base is correct when it is used.

In x86_32, tss.sp1 is resued as thread.sp0 in three places in entry
code. We have the correct CR3 and %fs at two of the places. The last
one is sysenter. This patchset makes %fs available earlier so that
we can also use percpu in sysenter. And add a percpu cpu_current_thread_sp0
for thread.sp0 instead of tss.sp1


Changed from V3:
Update subjects as Borislav's imperative request. ^_^
Update changelog as Borislav suggested.

Changed from V2:
Add missing "%ss:" reported by Brian Gerst.

Changed from V1:
Requested from Andy to also fix sp1 for x86_32.
Update comments in the x86_64 patch as Andy sugguested.

Lai Jiangshan (6):
x86/entry/64: Move cpu_current_top_of_stack out of TSS
x86/entry/32: Use percpu instead of offset-calculation to get
x86/entry/32: Switch to the task stack without emptying the entry
x86/entry/32: Restore %fs before switching stack
x86/entry/32: Use percpu to get thread.sp0 in SYSENTER
x86/entry/32: Introduce cpu_current_thread_sp0 to replace
