Merge branch 'x86/espfix' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip into next
Pull x86-64 espfix changes from Peter Anvin: "This is the espfix64 code, which fixes the IRET information leak as well as the associated functionality problem. With this code applied, 16-bit stack segments finally work as intended even on a 64-bit kernel. Consequently, this patchset also removes the runtime option that we added as an interim measure. To help the people working on Linux kernels for very small systems, this patchset also makes these compile-time configurable features" * 'x86/espfix' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: Revert "x86-64, modify_ldt: Make support for 16-bit segments a runtime option" x86, espfix: Make it possible to disable 16-bit support x86, espfix: Make espfix64 a Kconfig option, fix UML x86, espfix: Fix broken header guard x86, espfix: Move espfix definitions into a separate header file x86-32, espfix: Remove filter for espfix32 due to race x86-64, espfix: Don't leak bits 31:16 of %esp returning to 16-bit stack
