This makes more sense. Thanks for the clarification.

I agree on the behavior of 64K pages and I think as well that the
"compatibility" issue is still there. However as you correctly stated in your
first email arm32 never supported 16K or 64K pages, hence I think we should not
be concerned about compatibility in this cases.

To make it more explicit we could make COMPAT_VDSO on arm64 depend on
ARM64_4K_PAGES. What do you think?

Ok, sounds good to me. But it is something that this patch series inherited,
hence I would prefer to send a separate patch that introduces what you are
proposing and removes TASK_SIZE_32 from the headers. How does it sound?
