Coming back to an old thread...

I did some randconfig testing on 4.9.80, and now I see the same problem there,
since that version uses the KAISER patches rather than PTI:

/git/arm-soc/arch/x86/kernel/ldt.c: In function 'alloc_ldt_struct':
/git/arm-soc/arch/x86/include/asm/pgtable_types.h:208:24: error: large
integer implicitly truncated to unsigned type [-Werror=overflow]
/git/arm-soc/arch/x86/kernel/ldt.c:81:6: note: in expansion of macro

I also saw another warning:

/git/arm-soc/arch/x86/mm/kaiser.c: In function 'kaiser_init':
/git/arm-soc/arch/x86/mm/kaiser.c:347:8: error: 'vsyscall_pgprot'
undeclared (first use in this function); did you mean

I can send this as proper patches for inclusion in 4.9-stable, unless
someone has a better idea or finds a problem
