Subject: [PATCH 3.13 184/259] powerpc/perf: Fix MMCR2 handling for EBB

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

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

From: Michael Ellerman <mpe@...erman.id.au>

commit 8903461c9bc56fcb041fb92d054e2529951770b6 upstream.

In the recent commit b50a6c584bb4 "Clear MMCR2 when enabling PMU", I
screwed up the handling of MMCR2 for tasks using EBB.

We must make sure we set MMCR2 *before* ebb_switch_in(), otherwise we
overwrite the value of MMCR2 that userspace may have written. That
potentially breaks a task that uses EBB and manually uses MMCR2 for
event freezing.

Fixes: b50a6c584bb4 ("powerpc/perf: Clear MMCR2 when enabling PMU")
