Pull x86 fixes from Thomas Gleixner:
 "A couple of x86 fixes which missed rc1 due to my stupidity:

   - Drop lazy TLB mode before switching to the temporary address space
     for text patching.

     text_poke() switches to the temporary mm which clears the lazy mode
     and restores the original mm afterwards. Due to clearing lazy mode
     this might restore a already dead mm if exit_mmap() runs in
     parallel on another CPU.

   - Document the x32 syscall design fail vs. syscall numbers 512-547

   - Fix the ORC unwinder to handle the inactive task frame correctly.

     This was unearthed due to the slightly different code generation of

   - Use an up to date screen_info for the boot params of kexec instead
     of the possibly stale and invalid version which happened to be
     valid when the kexec kernel was loaded"

Linux kernel

There are several guides for kernel developers and users. These guides can
be rendered in a number of formats, like HTML and PDF. Please read
Documentation/admin-guide/README.rst first.

In order to build the documentation, use ``make htmldocs`` or
``make pdfdocs``.  The formatted documentation can also be read online at:

There are various text files in the Documentation/ subdirectory,
several of them using the Restructured Text markup notation.

Please read the Documentation/process/changes.rst file, as it contains the
requirements for building and running the kernel, and information about
the problems which may result by upgrading your kernel.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
