Subject: Re: [PATCH 00/35 v5] PTI support for x32

Hi Linus,

Here are some numbers I gathered for Ingo on v2 of the patch-set:

	https://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=151844711432661&w=2

I don't think they significantly changed, but I can measure them again
if needed.

Besides those, what other numbers/tests are you interested in?

Okay, I verify if there are any global bits left in the page-tables.
According to the PTDUMP_X86 the cpu_entry_area is mapped with G=1 (which
should be fine?) and another 4M range in the kernel mapping. I need to
check what that is.

Thanks,
