Subject: Re: [PATCH 3/7] powerpc/mm: Add a framework for Kernel Userspace
 Access Protection

Hi Christophe,

Thank you for the patch! Yet something to improve:

[auto build test ERROR on powerpc/next]
[also build test ERROR on v5.0-rc4 next-20190221]
[if your patch is applied to the wrong git tree, please drop us a note to help improve the system]

base: next
config: powerpc-allyesconfig (attached as .config)
compiler: powerpc64-linux-gnu-gcc (Debian 8.2.0-11) 8.2.0
        wget -O ~/bin/make.cross
        chmod +x ~/bin/make.cross
        # save the attached .config to linux build tree
        GCC_VERSION=8.2.0 make.cross ARCH=powerpc 

Note: the linux-review/Russell-Currey/Kernel-Userspace-Protection-for-radix/20190221-193749 HEAD 5f2951ce63da41c63227ed597252cea801adb5a4 builds fine.
      It only hurts bisectibility.

All errors (new ones prefixed by >>):
