xen/pv: Fix a boot up hang revealed by int3 self test
Commit 7457c0da024b ("x86/alternatives: Add int3_emulate_call() selftest") is used to ensure there is a gap setup in int3 exception stack which could be used for inserting call return address. This gap is missed in XEN PV int3 exception entry path, then below panic triggered: [ 0.772876] general protection fault: 0000 [#1] SMP NOPTI [ 0.772886] CPU: 0 PID: 0 Comm: swapper/0 Not tainted 5.2.0+ #11 [ 0.772893] RIP: e030:int3_magic+0x0/0x7 [ 0.772905] RSP: 3507:ffffffff82203e98 EFLAGS: 00000246 [ 0.773334] Call Trace: [ 0.773334] alternative_instructions+0x3d/0x12e [ 0.773334] check_bugs+0x7c9/0x887 [ 0.773334] ? __get_locked_pte+0x178/0x1f0 [ 0.773334] start_kernel+0x4ff/0x535 [ 0.773334] ? set_init_arg+0x55/0x55 [ 0.773334] xen_start_kernel+0x571/0x57a For 64bit PV guests, Xen's ABI enters the kernel with using SYSRET, with %rcx/%r11 on the stack. To convert back to "normal" looking exceptions, the xen thunks do 'xen_*: pop %rcx; pop %r11; jmp *'. E.g. Extracting 'xen_pv_trap xenint3' we have: xen_xenint3: pop %rcx; pop %r11; jmp xenint3 As xenint3 and int3 entry code are same except xenint3 doesn't generate a gap, we can fix it by using int3 and drop useless xenint3.
