Thank you! The problem almost only exposes itself when PTI on x86-32 is
enabled (which was merged in 4.19), so I only backported down to that

But it is right that it might be possible to trigger the problem on
older kernels too, e.g. in some 32bit XEN-pv configurations that use
same PAE page-table structures as the PTI code for 32bit.

So thanks for picking the fixes up for the older kernels too.
