Subject[PATCH for 5.10] powerpc/32: Preserve cr1 in exception prolog stack check to fix build error
Date
This is backport of 3642eb21256a ("powerpc/32: Preserve cr1 in
exception prolog stack check to fix build error") for kernel 5.10

It fixes the build failure on v5.10 reported by kernel test robot
and by David Michael.

This fix is not in Linux tree yet, it is in next branch in powerpc tree.

(cherry picked from commit 3642eb21256a317ac14e9ed560242c6d20cf06d9)

THREAD_ALIGN_SHIFT = THREAD_SHIFT + 1 = PAGE_SHIFT + 1
Maximum PAGE_SHIFT is 18 for 256k pages so
THREAD_ALIGN_SHIFT is 19 at the maximum.

No need to clobber cr1, it can be preserved when moving r1
into CR when we check stack overflow.

This reduces the number of instructions in Machine Check Exception
prolog and fixes a build failure reported by the kernel test robot
on v5.10 stable when building with RTAS + VMAP_STACK + KVM. That
build failure is due to too many instructions in the prolog hence
not fitting between 0x200 and 0x300. Allthough the problem doesn't
show up in mainline, it is still worth the change.
