parentacpi, x86/mm: Remove encryption mask from ACPI page protection type (diff)
x86/mm, mm/hwpoison: Clear PRESENT bit for kernel 1:1 mappings of poison pages
Speculative processor accesses may reference any memory that has a valid page table entry. While a speculative access won't generate a machine check, it will log the error in a machine check bank. That could cause escalation of a subsequent error since the overflow bit will be then set in the machine check bank status register. Code has to be double-plus-tricky to avoid mentioning the 1:1 virtual address of the page we want to map out otherwise we may trigger the very problem we are trying to avoid. We use a non-canonical address that passes through the usual Linux table walking code to get to the same "pte". Thanks to Dave Hansen for reviewing several iterations of this.
