IIUC, you're saying that after my v4.9.y meltdown backport, your own
backport of an out-of-tree patchset does not function.

There's no support for CFI in upsteam (at least as of v4.16), nor in
v4.9.93. I have no idea as to how KPTI interacts with an out-of-tree
patchset, so could you elaborate on the issue?

I've not seen any CFI patches on the linux-arm-kernel mailing list, so
it's not clear to me how this interacts with KPTI.

Which patches do you have applied that implement CFI? Which compiler are
you using?

... and here I see you have local changes applied.

It would be best if you tried to get CFI supported upstream before
trying to backport it. That would be best discussed on the
linux-arm-kernel mailing list.

Thanks,
Mark.
