Merge tag 'x86-urgent-2020-08-23' of git://

Pull x86 fix from Thomas Gleixner:
 "A single fix for x86 which removes the RDPID usage from the paranoid
  entry path and unconditionally uses LSL to retrieve the CPU number.

  RDPID depends on MSR_TSX_AUX. KVM has an optmization to avoid
  expensive MRS read/writes on VMENTER/EXIT. It caches the MSR values
  and restores them either when leaving the run loop, on preemption or
  when going out to user space. MSR_TSX_AUX is part of that lazy MSR
  set, so after writing the guest value and before the lazy restore any
  exception using the paranoid entry will read the guest value and use
  it as CPU number to retrieve the GSBASE value for the current CPU when
  FSGSBASE is enabled. As RDPID is only used in that particular entry
  path, there is no reason to burden VMENTER/EXIT with two extra MSR
  writes. Remove the RDPID optimization, which is not even backed by
  numbers from the paranoid entry path instead"
