Okay, I will prepare a PR with following patchsets:
1. Fixmap support and MM cleanups (Author: Anup Patel)
2. riscv: minor fixes and cleanups (Author: Johan Hovold)
3. RISC-V related changes from "Various SMP related fixes" (Author: Atish Patra)

All above patchsets touch same source files so this will
help you.

Regards,
Anup
