[PATCH 4.4 218/266] x86/speculation: Avoid __switch_to_xtra() calls




From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 5635d99953f04b550738f6f4c1c532667c3fd872 upstream.

The TIF_SPEC_IB bit does not need to be evaluated in the decision to invoke
__switch_to_xtra() when:

 - CONFIG_SMP is disabled

 - The conditional STIPB mode is disabled

The TIF_SPEC_IB bit still controls IBPB in both cases so the TIF work mask
checks might invoke __switch_to_xtra() for nothing if TIF_SPEC_IB is the
only set bit in the work masks.

Optimize it out by masking the bit at compile time for CONFIG_SMP=n and at
run time when the static key controlling the conditional STIBP mode is
disabled.
