Subject: [PATCH 4.14 041/159] x86/entry/64: Merge the fast and slow SYSRET paths

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

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

From: Andy Lutomirski <luto@...nel.org>

commit a512210643da8082cb44181dba8b18e752bd68f0 upstream.

They did almost the same thing.  Remove a bunch of pointless
instructions (mostly hidden in macros) and reduce cognitive load by
merging them.
