Subject: [PATCH] Revert "x86/mm: implement free pmd/pte page interfaces"
Date: Thu, 26 Apr 2018 17:14:07 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1524755647-18695-1-git-send-email-joro@8bytes.org> (raw)

From: Joerg Roedel <jroedel@suse.de>

This reverts commit 28ee90fe6048fa7b7ceaeb8831c0e4e454a4cf89.

This commit is broken for x86, as it unmaps the PTE and PMD
pages and immediatly frees them without doing a TLB flush.

Further this lacks synchronization with other page-tables in
the system when the PMD pages are not shared between
mm_structs.

On x86-32 with PAE and PTI patches on-top this patch
triggers the BUG_ON in vmalloc_sync_one() because the kernel
and the process page-table were not synchronized.
