Subject: [PATCH RFC 2/7] s390/vdso: don't clear PG_reserved
Date: Wed,  5 Dec 2018 13:28:46 +0100
Message-ID: <20181205122851.5891-3-david@redhat.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20181205122851.5891-1-david@redhat.com>

The VDSO is part of the kernel image and therefore the struct pages are
marked as reserved during boot.

As we install a special mapping, the actual struct pages will never be
exposed to MM via the page tables. We can therefore leave the pages
marked as reserved.
