SubjectRe: [PATCH v12 0/5] x86/boot/KASLR: Parse ACPI table and limit KASLR to choosing immovable memory
Hi Chao,

Thank you for your continued working.

Could you please build your patches before sending?
Your patches depend on the following kconfig,
so please build them under the config combination.

RANDOMIZE_BASE
MEMORY_HOTREMOVE
EARLY_PARSE_RSDP
KEXEC
EFI

Thanks,
Masa
