      perf/x86: Fix offcore_rsp valid mask for SNB/IVB · f1923820
      Stephane Eranian authored
      The valid mask for both offcore_response_0 and
      offcore_response_1 was wrong for SNB/SNB-EP,
      IVB/IVB-EP. It was possible to write to
      reserved bit and cause a GP fault crashing
      the kernel.
      
      This patch fixes the problem by correctly marking the
      reserved bits in the valid mask for all the processors
      mentioned above.
      
      A distinction between desktop and server parts is introduced
      because bits 24-30 are only available on the server parts.
      
      This version of the  patch is just a rebase to perf/urgent tree
      and should apply to older kernels as well.

      Merge branch 'uprobes/core' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/oleg/misc into perf/core
      
      Pull uprobes updates from Oleg Nesterov:
      
       - "uretprobes" - an optimization to uprobes, like kretprobes are an optimization
         to kprobes. "perf probe -x file sym%return" now works like kretprobes.
      
       - PowerPC fixes plus a couple of cleanups/optimizations in uprobes and trace_uprobes.
