runtime: zero upper bit of Y registers in asyncPreempt on darwin/amd64 Apparently, the signal handling code path in darwin kernel leaves the upper bits of Y registers in a dirty state, which causes many SSE operations (128-bit and narrower) become much slower. Clear the upper bits to get to a clean state. We do it at the entry of asyncPreempt, which is immediately following exiting from the kernel's signal handling code, if we actually injected a call. It does not cover other exits where we don't inject a call, e.g. failed preemption, profiling signal, or other async signals. But it does cover an important use case of async signals, preempting a tight numerical loop, which we introduced in this cycle. Running the benchmark in issue #37174: name old time/op new time/op delta Fast-8 90.0ns ± 1% 46.8ns ± 3% -47.97% (p=0.000 n=10+10) Slow-8 188ns ± 5% 49ns ± 1% -73.82% (p=0.000 n=10+9) There is no more slowdown due to preemption signals. For #37174.
