SubjectRe: [PATCH 4.14 023/159] mm/sparsemem: Allocate mem_section at runtime for CONFIG_SPARSEMEM_EXTREME=y

hi Kirill,

As Mike reported it below, your 5-level paging related upstream commit
83e3c48729d9 and all its followup fixes:

83e3c48729d9: mm/sparsemem: Allocate mem_section at runtime for CONFIG_SPARSEMEM_EXTREME=y
629a359bdb0e: mm/sparsemem: Fix ARM64 boot crash when CONFIG_SPARSEMEM_EXTREME=y
d09cfbbfa0f7: mm/sparse.c: wrong allocation for mem_section

... still breaks kexec - and that now regresses -stable as well.

Given that 5-level paging now syntactically depends on having this commit, if we
fully revert this then we'll have to disable 5-level paging as well.

Thanks,

Ingo
