Yikes, yes, 66f24fa766e3 does seem to have got that wrong. It looks like
that went into 5.13.

I think we want to specifically target this for stable so that we don't
lose the perfomance and scalability benefits of split pmd ptlocks:

Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org # v5.13+

(I don't think you need to do another revision for this, I think mpe
could add it when merging.)

I tried to check whether we accidentally broke SPLIT_PMD_PTLOCKs while
they were disabled:

 - There hasn't been any change to the pgtable_pmd_page_ctor or _dtor
   prototypes, and we haven't made any relevant changes to any of the
   files in arch/powerpc that called it.

 - I checked out v5.13 and powerpc/merge, applied this patch, built a
   pseries_le_defconfig and boot tested it in qemu. It didn't crash on
   boot or with /bin/sh and some shell commands, but I didn't exactly
   stress test the VM subsystem either.

This gives me some confidence it's both good for powerpc and stable-worthy.

Overall:

Kind regards,
