Subjectlinux 2.6.27 kernel panic on x86 - please revert commit 3a85e770aa77e4f1a4096275c97b64c10cd7323e


Commit 3a85e770aa77e4f1a4096275c97b64c10cd7323e broke linux boot on x86
resulting in kernel panic. Here's the console output ...

Net: Registered protocol family 17
Using IPI No-Shortcut mode
RAMDISK: Compressed image found at block 0
VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem (readonly).
Freeing unsued kernel memory: 312k freed
init[1]: segfault at ffffe01c up b7f0dc28 sp bfc26628 error 5 in ld-2.7.90.so[b7f0b000+1c000]
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!


Thanks,
Jeff.


Please revert this ...

x86, cpa: remove USER permission from the very early identity mapping attribute

remove USER from the PTE/PDE attributes for the very early identity
mapping. We overwrite these mappings with KERNEL attribute later
in the boot. Just being paranoid here as there is no need for USER bit
to be set.

If this breaks something(don't know the history), then we can simply drop
this change.
