Could you please consider this series for inclusion into v4.19?

- This series is needed to complete the initial cache pseudo-locking
enabling that is first introduced in v4.19. Without this series users
are able to create pseudo-locked regions but unable to accurately
measure their success.
- This is not adding a new feature of pseudo-locked region measurement
but fixing the existing measurement code that was disabled after found
to be poorly integrated.
- This series consists out of 6 patches. Patches 2 to 6 are either new
code in support of this fix or fixes to code that does not exist in
kernels before v4.19.
- Patch 1 is a fix to existing code. It is small, was suggested by, and
does have support from maintainer. Even so, if it is felt that this is
too risky then patches 2 to 6 could still be merged since it does not
actually depend on patch 1. In retrospect I should have submitted it

Your consideration would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
