Merge branch 'x86-pti-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip
Pull STIBP fallout fixes from Thomas Gleixner: "The performance destruction department finally got it's act together and came up with a cure for the STIPB regression: - Provide a command line option to control the spectre v2 user space mitigations. Default is either seccomp or prctl (if seccomp is disabled in Kconfig). prctl allows mitigation opt-in, seccomp enables the migitation for sandboxed processes. - Rework the code to handle the conditional STIBP/IBPB control and remove the now unused ptrace_may_access_sched() optimization attempt - Disable STIBP automatically when SMT is disabled - Optimize the switch_to() logic to avoid MSR writes and invocations of __switch_to_xtra(). - Make the asynchronous speculation TIF updates synchronous to prevent stale mitigation state. As a general cleanup this also makes retpoline directly depend on compiler support and removes the 'minimal retpoline' option which just pretended to provide some form of security while providing none" * 'x86-pti-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: (31 commits) x86/speculation: Provide IBPB always command line options x86/speculation: Add seccomp Spectre v2 user space protection mode x86/speculation: Enable prctl mode for spectre_v2_user x86/speculation: Add prctl() control for indirect branch speculation x86/speculation: Prepare arch_smt_update() for PRCTL mode x86/speculation: Prevent stale SPEC_CTRL msr content x86/speculation: Split out TIF update ptrace: Remove unused ptrace_may_access_sched() and MODE_IBRS x86/speculation: Prepare for conditional IBPB in switch_mm() x86/speculation: Avoid __switch_to_xtra() calls x86/process: Consolidate and simplify switch_to_xtra() code x86/speculation: Prepare for per task indirect branch speculation control x86/speculation: Add command line control for indirect branch speculation x86/speculation: Unify conditional spectre v2 print functions x86/speculataion: Mark command line parser data __initdata x86/speculation: Mark string arrays const correctly x86/speculation: Reorder the spec_v2 code x86/l1tf: Show actual SMT state x86/speculation: Rework SMT state change sched/smt: Expose sched_smt_present static key ...
