Subject[PATCH 4.14 12/74] x86/vsyscall/64: Explicitly set _PAGE_USER in the pagetable hierarchy
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Andy Lutomirski <luto@kernel.org>

commit 49275fef986abfb8b476e4708aaecc07e7d3e087 upstream.

The kernel is very erratic as to which pagetables have _PAGE_USER set. The
vsyscall page gets lucky: it seems that all of the relevant pagetables are
among the apparently arbitrary ones that set _PAGE_USER. Rather than
relying on chance, just explicitly set _PAGE_USER.

This will let us clean up pagetable setup to stop setting _PAGE_USER. The
added code can also be reused by pagetable isolation to manage the
_PAGE_USER bit in the usermode tables.
