Subject[PATCH 0/4] x86: 5-level related changes into decompression code
Hi Ingo,

While we haven't yet closed on how to handle MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS situation,
could you look on changes into kernel decompression code?

These changes prepare the code to boot-time switching between paging modes
and handle booting in 5-level mode when bootloader put kernel image above
4G, but haven't enabled 5-level paging for us.

Please review and consider applying.

Kirill A. Shutemov (4):
x86/boot/compressed/64: Compile pagetable.c unconditionally
x86/boot/compressed/64: Detect and handle 5-level paging at boot-time
x86/boot/compressed/64: Introduce place_trampoline()
x86/boot/compressed/64: Handle 5-level paging boot if kernel is above
