bpf, arm64: use separate register for state in stxr
Will reported that in BPF_XADD we must use a different register in stxr instruction for the status flag due to otherwise CONSTRAINED UNPREDICTABLE behavior per architecture. Reference manual says [1]: If s == t, then one of the following behaviors must occur: * The instruction is UNDEFINED. * The instruction executes as a NOP. * The instruction performs the store to the specified address, but the value stored is UNKNOWN. Thus, use a different temporary register for the status flag to fix it. Disassembly extract from test 226/STX_XADD_DW from test_bpf.ko: [...] 0000003c: c85f7d4b ldxr x11, [x10] 00000040: 8b07016b add x11, x11, x7 00000044: c80c7d4b stxr w12, x11, [x10] 00000048: 35ffffac cbnz w12, 0x0000003c [...] [1] https://static.docs.arm.com/ddi0487/b/DDI0487B_a_armv8_arm.pdf, p.6132 Fixes: 85f68fe89832 ("bpf, arm64: implement jiting of BPF_XADD") Reported-by: Will Deacon <will.deacon@arm.com> Signed-off-by: Daniel Borkmann <daniel@iogearbox.net> Acked-by: Will Deacon <will.deacon@arm.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
