[RFC] [PATCH 8/16] x86_64: Add EFER to the set registers saved by save_processor_state

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

 



EFER varies like %cr4 depending on the cpu capabilities, and which cpu
capabilities we want to make use of.  So save/restore it make certain
we have the same EFER value when we are done.
