Subject[PATCH v2 0/3] fix free pmd/pte page handlings on x86
This series fixes two issues in the x86 ioremap free page handlings
for pud/pmd mappings.

Patch 01 fixes BUG_ON on x86-PAE reported by Joerg. It disables
the free page handling on x86-PAE.

Patch 02-03 fixes a possible issue with speculation which can cause
stale page-directory cache.
- Patch 02 is from Chintan's v9 01/04 patch [1], which adds a new arg
'addr'. This avoids merge conflicts with his series.
- Patch 03 adds a TLB purge (INVLPG) to purge page-structure caches
that may be cached by speculation. See the patch descriptions for
more detal.


- Reordered patch-set, so that patch 01 can be applied independently.
- Added a NULL pointer check for the page alloc in patch 03.

1/3 x86/mm: disable ioremap free page handling on x86-PAE
3/3 x86/mm: add TLB purge to free pmd/pte page interfaces

Chintan Pandya (1):
2/3 ioremap: Update pgtable free interfaces with addr
