I'm not sure this ever was resolved?

Is it the case that the series "Remove nrexceptional tracking v2" at
least exposed this bug?

IOW, what the heck should I do with

mm-introduce-and-use-mapping_empty.patch
mm-stop-accounting-shadow-entries.patch
dax-account-dax-entries-as-nrpages.patch
mm-remove-nrexceptional-from-inode.patch

Thanks.
