[PATCH 2/2] x86/retpoline: Fix return buffer filling




From: Andi Kleen <ak@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

An earlier patch moved the RSB filling out of line, ending
it with a return. This results in the return buffer filling
only giving 15 instead of 16 usable returns because
the return from fill_rsb already uses one up.

Since the kernel call chains can be quite deep that's
somewhat dangerous and better avoided.

Always do one extra return buffer fill in the caller.
I added a STUFF_ONE_RSB macro for this, and fixed
up all the caller

An alternative would be to revert 1dde7415e999
and just go back to the inline version.

Needs the earlier patch to avoid lots of bogus warnings
from objtool, but even with that there is one left.

Fixes: 1dde7415e999 ("x86/retpoline: Simplify vmexit...")
