Subject: [PATCH 0/2] x86/entry: simplify RESTORE_CR3

When I searched percpu data touched by entry code for #DB
protection[1], it seems to me RESTORE_CR3() does too much work,
this patchset simplifies it.

Patch 1 enhances 21e944591102("x86/mm: Optimize RESTORE_CR3") for
kernel CR3.

Patch 2 *reverts* 21e944591102("x86/mm: Optimize RESTORE_CR3") for
User CR3.

Lai Jiangshan (2):
  x86/entry: Don't write to CR3 when restoring to kernel CR3
  x86/entry: always flush user CR3 in RESTORE_CR3
