Subject[PATCH v5 0/2] x86/fpu: Make AMX state ready for CPU idle
Date
Here is the fifth version of this series.

I've addressed Dave's comment [2] assuming that the change makes sense to
folks:
* Check the AMX_TILE feature bit instead of XGETBV1.
* Massage the changelog accordingly.

While many people had their eyeballs on this, Rafael's ACK was given so
far. Hopefully this can attracts more acknowledgment or endorsement if it
looks fine.

=== Cover Letter ===

AMX state is a large state (at least 8KB or more). Entering CPU idle with
this non-initialized large state may result in shallow states while a
deeper low-power state is available.

We can confirm this behavior is implementation-specific. Section 3.3 in [3]
will be updated to clarify this.

This patch set ensures the AMX state is initialized before entering the CPU
idle state.

The patch set is based on 5.19-rc1. It is also available here:
