Unless I am reading the commit message wrong and ignoring the fact that
the mainling commit applied cleanly to 4.4.124, it seems like this is
still relevant for x86.

Toshi suggested dropping the changes to arch/arm64/mm/mmu.c, which won't
be a problem for arm64 devices running the stable kernels as they come
because they don't have HAVE_ARCH_HUGE_VMAP so they shouldn't be hitting
the bug mentioned in the commit message anyways.

However, for Android devices which have the mainline commit I mentioned
above introducing HAVE_ARCH_HUGE_VMAP, dropping those changes would mean
this commit isn't fixing the issue it mentions, which they would be able
to hit in theory.

I don't know how you want to handle that but a simple suggestion that
would not change the end result of the patch for both the stable tree
and frankenkernels would be to add a simple

#ifdef CONFIG_ARCH_HAVE_HUGE_VMAP

around the changes in arch/arm64/mm/mmu.c.

I'll let you be the final judge though! Cheers,
Nathan
