but then it crashes init:

init[1]: segfault at ffffffffff600400 ip ffffffffff600400 sp
7fff81bedda8 error5printk: 7740690 messages suppressed.
because you changed __PAGE_KERNEL_VSYSCALL as well, from:

#define __PAGE_KERNEL_VSYSCALL \
(_PAGE_PRESENT | _PAGE_USER | _PAGE_ACCESSED)
to:

#define __PAGE_KERNEL_VSYSCALL (__PAGE_KERNEL_RO | _PAGE_USER)
but __PAGE_KERNEL_RO is an NX one, so the vsyscall cannot execute
instructions.

so this wants to be:

#define __PAGE_KERNEL_VSYSCALL (__PAGE_KERNEL_RX | _PAGE_USER)
this was the last bug and the resulting kernel boots fine. 3 nasty bugs
in one patch :-/
