Not that my feedback will matter much on this release since Pixel 2 XL
is an arm64 device but merged, compiled, and flashed successfully.

The changes to kernel/fork.c had to be slightly adjusted for Google's
tree due to their addition of mainline commit b235beea9e99 ("Clarify
naming of thread info/stack allocators").

No noticeable issues in general use or dmesg.

Thanks!
Nathan
