Commit e88d62cd4b2f0b1ae55e9008e79c2794b1fc914d upstream.

As raw_cpu_generic_read() is a plain read from a raw_cpu_ptr() address,
it's possible (albeit unlikely) that the compiler will split the access
across multiple instructions.

In this_cpu_generic_read() we disable preemption but not interrupts
before calling raw_cpu_generic_read(). Thus, an interrupt could be taken
in the middle of the split load instructions. If a this_cpu_write() or
RMW this_cpu_*() op is made to the same variable in the interrupt
handling path, this_cpu_read() will return a torn value.

For native word types, we can avoid tearing using READ_ONCE(), but this
won't work in all cases (e.g. 64-bit types on most 32-bit platforms).
This patch reworks this_cpu_generic_read() to use READ_ONCE() where
possible, otherwise falling back to disabling interrupts.
