Hi, David,

Yes it should solve it.

The early prototype in Andrea's tree hasn't yet applied the new
PTE/swap bits for uffd-wp hence it was not able to avoid those fause
positives. This series has applied all those ideas (which actually
come from Andrea as well) so the protection information will be
persisent per PTE rather than per VMA and it will be kept even through
swapping and page migrations.

Thanks,
