Subject[PATCH v5 00/22] powerpc/32: Implement C syscall entry/exit
This series implements C syscall entry/exit for PPC32. It reuses
the work already done for PPC64.

This series is based on today's merge-test (b6f72fc05389e3fc694bf5a5fa1bbd33f61879e0)

In terms on performance we have the following number of cycles on an
8xx running null_syscall benchmark:
- mainline: 296 cycles
- after patch 4: 283 cycles
- after patch 16: 304 cycles
- after patch 17: 348 cycles
- at the end of the series: 320 cycles

So in summary, we have a degradation of performance of 8% on null_syscall.

I think it is not a big degradation, it is worth it.

v4 was the first mature version.

- Comments from Nick
- Converted booke DBCR0 handling in C
- Removed convertion of KUAP restore in C (will be done as part of interrupt entry/exit porting to C)
- Added a few more changes in preparatory patches to prepare for interrupt entry/exit in C which will follow

Christophe Leroy (22):
powerpc/32s: Add missing call to kuep_lock on syscall entry
powerpc/32: Always enable data translation on syscall entry
powerpc/32: On syscall entry, enable instruction translation at the
same time as data
powerpc/32: Reorder instructions to avoid using CTR in syscall entry
powerpc/irq: Add helper to set regs->softe
powerpc/irq: Rework helpers that manipulate MSR[EE/RI]
powerpc/irq: Add stub irq_soft_mask_return() for PPC32
powerpc/syscall: Rename syscall_64.c into interrupt.c
powerpc/syscall: Make interrupt.c buildable on PPC32
powerpc/syscall: Use is_compat_task()
powerpc/syscall: Save r3 in regs->orig_r3
powerpc/syscall: Change condition to check MSR_RI
powerpc/32: Always save non volatile GPRs at syscall entry
powerpc/syscall: implement system call entry/exit logic in C for PPC32
powerpc/32: Remove verification of MSR_PR on syscall in the ASM entry
powerpc/syscall: Avoid stack frame in likely part of
powerpc/syscall: Do not check unsupported scv vector on PPC32
powerpc/syscall: Remove FULL_REGS verification in
powerpc/syscall: Optimise checks in beginning of
powerpc/syscall: Avoid storing 'current' in another pointer
powerpc/32: Remove the counter in global_dbcr0
powerpc/32: Handle bookE debugging in C in syscall entry/exit
