That first patch looks like an acceptable candidate for fixes. If
there's a regression that manifests I'm happy to take it, but if it's
only possible to manifest a crash with the new stuff then I'm OK just
holding off until the merge window.

I was just poking around v6, so I have some minor comments there. None
of those need to block merging this, but I am getting a bunch of build
failures under allmodconfig

$ make.riscv allmodconfig
#
# configuration written to .config
#
$ make.riscv mm/kasan/init.o
SYNC include/config/auto.conf.cmd
CALL scripts/atomic/check-atomics.sh

make[1]: *** [scripts/Makefile.build:550: mm/kasan] Error 2
make: *** [Makefile:1831: mm] Error 2

Unfortunately my build box just blew up so I haven't had time to confim
this still exists on v7, but nothing's jumping out as a fix. I've put
this on the riscv-d1 branch at kernel.org/palmer/linux, not sure exactly
what's going on but I'm guessing one of the macros has gone off the
rails. I'm going to look at something else (as this one at least
depends on Atish's patches), but LMK if you've got the time to look into
this or if I should.

Thanks!
