It's highly unlikely you'll be able to revert this on top of 4.4. Unfortunately,
this is the cornerstone of a whole lot of infrastructure needed to support the
per process page tables.
I'm just the measly original author of the patch. Lots of others tried to right
my wrongs, and they're better suited to debug this. If there hasn't been much
traction, it's probably because of the holidays.
I assume suspend to disk is also failing?
