Subject[PATCH 0/2] x86/mm/pkeys: fix user-visible pkey state destruction at fork()
From
Date
Hi x86 maintainers,

This is an important fix that I believe needs to be merged for 4.21.
Without it, applications calling fork() can potentially double-allocate
a protection key, causing lots of strange problems.

Thomas's Reviewed-by is on the the actual fix, but not the selftest.

I would also be happy to send this as a pull request if you would
prefer.
