Subject: Re: Patch "KVM: arm64: Make vcpu_cp1x() work on Big Endian hosts" has
 been added to the 4.4-stable tree

Hi,

Not familiar with kvm. And I have a question about this patch. Maybe 
backport this patch 3204be4109ad("KVM: arm64: Make vcpu_cp1x() work on 
Big Endian hosts") without 52f6c4f02164 ("KVM: arm64: Change 32-bit 
handling of VM system registers") seems not right?

Thanks,
Kun.
