Hi Linus,

Here are some arm64 fixes for -rc6. The main changes are relating to our
handling of access/dirty bits, where our low-level page-table helpers
could lead to stale young mappings and loss of the dirty bit in some
cases (the latter has not been observed in practice, but could happen
when clearing "soft-dirty" if we enabled that). These were posted as
part of a larger series, but the rest of that is less urgent and needs a
v2 which I'll get to shortly.

In other news, we've now got a set of fixes to resolve the
lockdep/tracing problems that have been plaguing us for a while, but
they're still a bit "fresh" and I plan to send them to you next week
after we've got some more confidence in them (although initial CI
results look good).

Anyway, summary in the tag; please pull.
