SubjectRe: [PATCH 00/39 v7] PTI support for x86-32
Hi!

> here is version 7 of my patches to enable PTI on x86-32.
> Changes to the previous version are:
>
> * Rebased to v4.18-rc4
>
> * Introduced pti_finalize() which is called after
> mark_readonly() and used to update the kernel
> mappings in the user page-table after RO/NX
> protections are in place.
>
> The patches need the vmalloc/ioremap fixes in tip/x86/mm to
> work correctly, because this enablement makes the issues
> fixed there more likely to happen.

Would it make sense to merge the part of the series that was reviewed
without comments? It would get at least part of the series testing in
-next....
