This is the start of the stable review cycle for the 4.9.193 release.
There are 14 patches in this series, all will be posted as a response
to this one. If anyone has any issues with these being applied, please
let me know.

Responses should be made by Sun 15 Sep 2019 01:03:32 PM UTC.
Anything received after that time might be too late.

Is it really only me seeing this ?

drivers/vhost/vhost.c: In function 'translate_desc':
include/linux/compiler.h:549:38: error: call to '__compiletime_assert_1879' declared with attribute error: BUILD_BUG_ON failed: sizeof(_s) > sizeof(long)

i386:allyesconfig, mips:allmodconfig and others, everywhere including
mainline. Culprit is commit a89db445fbd7f1 ("vhost: block speculation
of translated descriptors").

Nope, I just got another report of this on 5.2.y. Problem is also in
Linus's tree :(

Please apply upstream commit 0d4a3f2abbef ("Revert "vhost: block speculation
of translated descriptors") to v4.9.y-queue and later to fix the build problems.
Or maybe just drop the offending commit from the stable release queues.

I'm just going to drop the offending commit from everywhere and push out
new -rcs in a bit...

A quick rebuild of previously failed builds now passes, so looks like we are good.
