4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Nick Desaulniers <ndesaulniers@google.com>

commit d0a8d9378d16eb3c69bd8e6d23779fbdbee3a8c7 upstream.

native_save_fl() is marked static inline, but by using it as
a function pointer in arch/x86/kernel/paravirt.c, it MUST be outlined.

paravirt's use of native_save_fl() also requires that no GPRs other than
%rax are clobbered.

Compilers have different heuristics which they use to emit stack guard
code, the emittance of which can break paravirt's callee saved assumption
by clobbering %rcx.

Marking a function definition extern inline means that if this version
cannot be inlined, then the out-of-line version will be preferred. By
having the out-of-line version be implemented in assembly, it cannot be
instrumented with a stack protector, which might violate custom calling
conventions that code like paravirt rely on.

The semantics of extern inline has changed since gnu89. This means that
folks using GCC versions >= 5.1 may see symbol redefinition errors at
link time for subdirs that override KBUILD_CFLAGS (making the C standard
used implicit) regardless of this patch. This has been cleaned up
earlier in the patch set, but is left as a note in the commit message
for future travelers.



Thanks to the many folks that participated in the discussion.
