3.2.101-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Andrey Ryabinin <aryabi...@virtuozzo.com>

commit 196bd485ee4f03ce4c690bfcf38138abfcd0a4bc upstream.

Currently we use current_stack_pointer() function to get the value
of the stack pointer register. Since commit:

  f5caf621ee35 ("x86/asm: Fix inline asm call constraints for Clang")

... we have a stack register variable declared. It can be used instead of
current_stack_pointer() function which allows to optimize away some
excessive "mov %rsp, %<dst>" instructions:

 -mov    %rsp,%rdx
 -sub    %rdx,%rax
 -cmp    $0x3fff,%rax
 -ja     ffffffff810722fd <ist_begin_non_atomic+0x2d>

 +sub    %rsp,%rax
 +cmp    $0x3fff,%rax
 +ja     ffffffff810722fa <ist_begin_non_atomic+0x2a>

Remove current_stack_pointer(), rename __asm_call_sp to current_stack_pointer
and use it instead of the removed function.
