Ard's series already adds vmap stack support (which we've been doing
some last minute panic-debugging on to get it ready for this merge
window), but the above description makes it sound like this series is
a pre-requisit for that.

Is it? Will Ard's work cause further regressions because this series
isn't merged.

Please clarify - and urgently, there is not much time left before the
merge window opens.
