Subject: x86/xen: Make the secondary CPU idle tasks reliable
From: Miroslav Benes <mbenes@suse.cz>
commit c3881eb58d56116c79ac4ee4f40fd15ead124c4b upstream.
The unwinder reports the secondary CPU idle tasks' stack on XEN PV as
unreliable, which affects at least live patching.
cpu_initialize_context() sets up the context of the CPU through
VCPUOP_initialise hypercall. After it is woken up, the idle task starts
in cpu_bringup_and_idle() function and its stack starts at the offset
right below pt_regs. The unwinder correctly detects the end of stack
there but it is confused by NULL return address in the last frame.
Introduce a wrapper in assembly, which just calls
cpu_bringup_and_idle(). The return address is thus pushed on the stack
and the wrapper contains the annotation hint for the unwinder regarding
the stack state.
