Hi Linus,

Please pull these arm64 fixes for -rc6. They're almost exclusively
related to CPU errata in CPUs from Broadcom and Qualcomm where the
workarounds were either not being enabled when they should have been or
enabled when they shouldn't have been. The only "interesting" fix is
ensuring that writeable, shared mappings are initially mapped as clean
since we inadvertently broke the logic back in v4.14 and then noticed
the problem via code inspection the other day.

The only critical issue we have outstanding is a sporadic NULL
dereference in the scheduler, which doesn't appear to be arm64-specific
and PeterZ is tearing his hair out over it at the moment.
