Thanks Will! I've added your acked-by to the entire series, also
tweaked 14/14's commit log to indicate that it's been tested on Juno
as well.

Hmm... if net-next is still open, and David is willing to pull in this
series, I share Alexei's opinion -- don't see why a delay is
necessary. David, any chance of pulling this series into net-next for

BTW, I also tried merging
for-next/core' with this series. The example merge is available at
'https://github.com/zlim/linux.git arm64/bpf-merge'. The merge
conflict resolution is really trivial:

Anyway, here's an updated branch (with Will's acks, commit log tweak
noting Will's testing on real hardware, rebase on net-next). I can
repost entire patch series if needed.

The following changes since commit 52c4f0ec662bbf02f1b0bcb311a48af2c8e5ee89:
