arm64: mm: Support Common Not Private translations
Common Not Private (CNP) is a feature of ARMv8.2 extension which allows translation table entries to be shared between different PEs in the same inner shareable domain, so the hardware can use this fact to optimise the caching of such entries in the TLB. CNP occupies one bit in TTBRx_ELy and VTTBR_EL2, which advertises to the hardware that the translation table entries pointed to by this TTBR are the same as every PE in the same inner shareable domain for which the equivalent TTBR also has CNP bit set. In case CNP bit is set but TTBR does not point at the same translation table entries for a given ASID and VMID, then the system is mis-configured, so the results of translations are UNPREDICTABLE. For kernel we postpone setting CNP till all cpus are up and rely on cpufeature framework to 1) patch the code which is sensitive to CNP and 2) update TTBR1_EL1 with CNP bit set. TTBR1_EL1 can be reprogrammed as result of hibernation or cpuidle (via __enable_mmu). For these two cases we restore CnP bit via __cpu_suspend_exit(). There are a few cases we need to care of changes in TTBR0_EL1: - a switch to idmap - software emulated PAN we rule out latter via Kconfig options and for the former we make sure that CNP is set for non-zero ASIDs only.
