Subject: [GIT PULL] arm64 fixes for -rc4

Hi Linus,

Please pull these arm64 fixes for -rc4. Nothing Earth-shattering, really;
some CPU errata workarounds (one day they'll get it right, ha!) and a
fix for a boot failure with very large kernel images where the alternative
patching gets confused when patching relative branches using veneers.

There are some vDSO and ptrace fixes floating about, but they need more
review and testing if I'm going to send them for 5.8.




The following changes since commit 108447fd0d1a34b0929cd26dc637c917a734ebab:

  arm64: Add KRYO{3,4}XX silver CPU cores to SSB safelist (2020-06-25 20:18:57 +0100)
