FWIW, trying these on arm64 (ThunderX2) with CONFIG_KGDB_TESTS_ON_BOOT=y
on top of 4.20-rc5 doesn't boot. It looks like they leave interrupts
disabled when they shouldn't and it trips over the BUG at
mm/vmalloc.c:1380 (called via do_fork -> copy_process).

Now, I don't think these patches make things worse on arm64 since prior
to them the kgdb boot tests on arm64 were stuck in a loop (RUN
singlestep).
