Revert "ext4: make __ext4_get_inode_loc plug"

This reverts commit b03755ad6f33b7b8cd7312a3596a2dbf496de6e7.

This is sad, and done for all the wrong reasons. Because that commit is
good, and does exactly what it says: avoids a lot of small disk requests
for the inode table read-ahead.

However, it turns out that it causes an entirely unrelated problem: the
getrandom() system call was introduced back in 2014 by commit
c6e9d6f38894 ("random: introduce getrandom(2) system call"), and people
use it as a convenient source of good random numbers.

But part of the current semantics for getrandom() is that it waits for
the entropy pool to fill at least partially (unlike /dev/urandom). And
at least ArchLinux apparently has a systemd that uses getrandom() at
boot time, and the improvements in IO patterns means that existing
installations suddenly start hanging, waiting for entropy that will
never happen.

It seems to be an unlucky combination of not _quite_ enough entropy,
together with a particular systemd version and configuration. Lennart
says that the systemd-random-seed process (which is what does this early
access) is supposed to not block any other boot activity, but sadly that
doesn't actually seem to be the case (possibly due bogus dependencies on
cryptsetup for encrypted swapspace).

The correct fix is to fix getrandom() to not block when it's not
appropriate, but that fix is going to take a lot more discussion. Do we
just make it act like /dev/urandom by default, and add a new flag for
"wait for entropy"? Do we add a boot-time option? Or do we just limit
the amount of time it will wait for entropy?

So in the meantime, we do the revert to give us time to discuss the
eventual fix for the fundamental problem, at which point we can re-apply
the ext4 inode table access optimization.

Pull kvm fixes from Paolo Bonzini:
 "The main change here is a revert of reverts. We recently simplified
  some code that was thought unnecessary; however, since then KVM has
  grown quite a few cond_resched()s and for that reason the simplified
  code is prone to livelocks---one CPUs tries to empty a list of guest
  page tables while the others keep adding to them. This adds back the
  generation-based zapping of guest page tables, which was not
  unnecessary after all.

  On top of this, there is a fix for a kernel memory leak and a couple
  of s390 fixlets as well"

Merge tag 'riscv/for-v5.3' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/riscv/linux

Pull RISC-V fix from Paul Walmsley:
 "Last week, Palmer and I learned that there was an error in the RISC-V
  kernel image header format that could make it less compatible with the
  ARM64 kernel image header format. I had missed this error during my
  original reviews of the patch.

  The kernel image header format is an interface that impacts
  bootloaders, QEMU, and other user tools. Those packages must be
  updated to align with whatever is merged in the kernel. We would like
  to avoid proliferating these image formats by keeping the RISC-V
  header as close as possible to the existing ARM64 header. Since the
  arch/riscv patch that adds support for the image header was merged
  with our v5.3-rc1 pull request as commit 0f327f2aaad6a ("RISC-V: Add
  an Image header that boot loader can parse."), we think it wise to try
  to fix this error before v5.3 is released.

  The fix itself should be backwards-compatible with any project that
  has already merged support for premature versions of this interface.
  It primarily involves ensuring that the RISC-V image header has
  something useful in the same field as the ARM64 image header"

Revert "vhost: block speculation of translated descriptors"

This reverts commit a89db445fbd7f1f8457b03759aa7343fa530ef6b.

I was hasty to include this patch, and it breaks the build on 32 bit.
Defence in depth is good but let's do it properly.
