I am not really sure what I am doing is correct.

On one window:
# ./00-runme
Warning: vlan 0 is not connected to host network
VNC server running on '::1:5900'

And another window on the same system:
# vncviewer localhost:1

There are two issues here.
 1. copy_process() failed in the check in reserve_pfn_range()
 2. error path in copy_process() then hit WARN_ON_ONCE in untrack_pfn().

We are currently looking into #1, which Richard referred as:
| It appears that Xorg mmaps this from userspace, then later does a
| fork() to execute a utility. At this point, when creating the vmas for
| the new process, the pat code says "eeek!" as the protection mode for
| the new vmas don't match the old one, returns -EINVAL, the process dies
| and X goes with it.

Since it seemed that Richard had some analysis on #1, I wanted to confirm
that the failure path of #1 was the above stack trace.

The stack trace below shows the failure path of #2.

From the failure, it looks as if pat_init() was not called at all, but I
cannot explain how built-in vs module can make such difference.

Great.  Yes, two dmesg will be really helpful.

Thanks,
