Subject: [GIT PULL] x86/mm for 6.1
Date: Thu, 6 Oct 2022 09:23:37 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi Linus,

Please pull some x86/mm changes for v6.1.  There are some small things
here, plus one big one.  The big one detected and refused to create W+X
kernel mappings.  This caused a bit of trouble and it is entirely
disabled on 32-bit due to known unfixable EFI issues.  It also oopsed
on some systemd eBPF use, which kept some users from booting.

The eBPF issue is fixed, but those troubles were caught relatively
recently which made me nervous that there are more lurking.  The final
commit in x86_mm_for_v6.1_rc1 retains the warnings, but doesn't
actually refuse to create W+X mappings.


The following changes since commit 42e66b1cc3a070671001f8a1e933a80818a192bf:

  Merge tag 'net-6.0-rc4' of git:// (2022-09-01 09:20:42 -0700)
