Subject: [PATCH 3.16 22/26] MIPS: traps: Fix inline asm ctc1 missing .set

3.16.43-rc2 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: James Hogan <>

commit d76e9b9fc5de7e8fc4fd0e72a94e8c723929ffea upstream.

Commit 842dfc11ea9a ("MIPS: Fix build with binutils 2.24.51+") in v3.18
enabled -msoft-float and sprinkled ".set hardfloat" where necessary to
use FP instructions. However it missed enable_restore_fp_context() which
since v3.17 does a ctc1 with inline assembly, causing the following
assembler errors on Mentor's 2014.05 toolchain:

{standard input}: Assembler messages:
{standard input}:2913: Error: opcode not supported on this processor: mips32r2 (mips32r2) `ctc1 $2,$31'
scripts/ recipe for target 'arch/mips/kernel/traps.o' failed

Fix that to use the new write_32bit_cp1_register() macro so that ".set
hardfloat" is automatically added when -msoft-float is in use.

Fixes 842dfc11ea9a ("MIPS: Fix build with binutils 2.24.51+")
