[PATCH 4.14 115/140] nospec: Kill array_index_nospec_mask_check()




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

------------------

From: Dan Williams <dan.j.williams@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 1d91c1d2c80cb70e2e553845e278b87a960c04da upstream.

There are multiple problems with the dynamic sanity checking in
array_index_nospec_mask_check():

* It causes unnecessary overhead in the 32-bit case since integer sized
  @index values will no longer cause the check to be compiled away like
  in the 64-bit case.

* In the 32-bit case it may trigger with user controllable input when
  the expectation is that should only trigger during development of new
  kernel enabling.

* The macro reuses the input parameter in multiple locations which is
  broken if someone passes an expression like 'index++' to
  array_index_nospec().
