Subject: RE: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.5 389/542] clocksource/drivers/hyper-v: Reserve
 PAGE_SIZE space for tsc page

This patch does not need to be backported to any stable releases.  It is prep work for guests on Hyper-V ARM64 when the guest page size is 16K or 64K, and that functionality isn't upstream yet.
