Thank you very much! I have applied it to our v5.12-rc2 tree and it seems fine.

I haven't done any testes recently on the CI20. But I remember that I had left an older version out or reverted because it made problems with SMP.
And, I have not yet seen the BUG: Bad rss-counter state mm: (ptrval) type:MM_ANONPAGES val:1
At least not on jz4730 with v5.12-rc2 where it seems as if I have finally fixed the ingenic-timer issues and now we get more precise clock-event-devices.
There is still an issue with futex which makes a sysbench run 300 times slower on jz4730 than on some i.MX6 while a simple C program runs at 1/4 of the speed (which is within expectations).
