[PATCH 4.14 120/140] x86/asm: Improve how GEN_*_SUFFIXED_RMWcc() specify clobbers

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


From: Jan Beulich <JBeulich@xxxxxxxx>

commit 700b7c5409c3e9da279fbea78cf28a78fbc176cd upstream.


  df3405245a ("x86/asm: Add suffix macro for GEN_*_RMWcc()")

... introduced "suffix" RMWcc operations, adding bogus clobber specifiers:
For one, on x86 there's no point explicitly clobbering "cc".

In fact, with GCC properly fixed, this results in an overlap being detected by
the compiler between outputs and clobbers.

Furthermore it seems bad practice to me to have clobber specification
and use of the clobbered register(s) disconnected - it should rather be
at the invocation place of that GEN_{UN,BIN}ARY_SUFFIXED_RMWcc() macros
that the clobber is specified which this particular invocation needs.

Drop the "cc" clobber altogether and move the "cx" one to refcount.h.
