Subject[PATCH -next v8 0/4]arm64: add machine check safe support
With the increase of memory capacity and density, the probability of
memory error increases. The increasing size and density of server RAM
in the data center and cloud have shown increased uncorrectable memory

Currently, the kernel has a mechanism to recover from hardware memory
errors. This patchset provides an new recovery mechanism.

For arm64, the hardware memory error handling is do_sea() which divided
into two cases:
1. The user state consumed the memory errors, the solution is kill the
user process and isolate the error page.
2. The kernel state consumed the memory errors, the solution is panic.

For case 2, Undifferentiated panic maybe not the optimal choice, it can
be handled better, in some scenarios, we can avoid panic, such as
uaccess, if the uaccess fails due to memory error, only the user
process will be affected, kill the user process and isolate the user
page with hardware memory errors is a better choice.

Since V7:
Currently, there are patches supporting recover from poison
consumption for the cow scenario[1]. Therefore, Supporting cow
scenario under the arm64 architecture only needs to modify the relevant
code under the arch/.

Since V6:
Resend patches that are not merged into the mainline in V6.

Since V5:
1. Add patch2/3 to add uaccess assembly helpers.
2. Optimize the implementation logic of arm64_do_kernel_sea() in patch8.
3. Remove kernel access fixup in patch9.
All suggestion are from Mark.

Since V4:
1. According Michael's suggestion, add patch5.
2. According Mark's suggestiog, do some restructuring to arm64
extable, then a new adaptation of machine check safe support is made based
on this.
3. According Mark's suggestion, support machine check safe in do_mte() in
cow scene.
4. In V4, two patches have been merged into -next, so V5 not send these
two patches.

Since V3:
1. According to Robin's suggestion, direct modify user_ldst and
user_ldp in asm-uaccess.h and modify mte.S.
2. Add new macro USER_MC in asm-uaccess.h, used in copy_from_user.S
and copy_to_user.S.
3. According to Robin's suggestion, using micro in copy_page_mc.S to
simplify code.
4. According to KeFeng's suggestion, modify powerpc code in patch1.
5. According to KeFeng's suggestion, modify mm/extable.c and some code

Since V2:
1. According to Mark's suggestion, all uaccess can be recovered due to
memory error.
2. Scenario pagecache reading is also supported as part of uaccess
(copy_to_user()) and duplication code problem is also solved.
Thanks for Robin's suggestion.
3. According Mark's suggestion, update commit message of patch 2/5.
4. According Borisllav's suggestion, update commit message of patch 1/5.

Since V1:
1.Consistent with PPC/x86, Using CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_COPY_MC instead of
2.Add two new scenes, cow and pagecache reading.
3.Fix two small bug(the first two patch).

V1 in here:

Tong Tiangen (4):
uaccess: add generic fallback version of copy_mc_to_user()
arm64: add support for machine check error safe
arm64: add uaccess to machine check safe
arm64: add cow to machine check safe
