Now that 5.4.0-rc1 has been released, I will post the kernel API fixes that work 
for me.

The changes are as follows:
1. The issues reported by Cyrax regarding changes in skb_frag_t are implemented 
with dependency on 5.4, not 5.3 as in the original.
2. The API to set/unset the executable bit in data pages has been removed. My 
fix disables this feature. This approach works and is likely the correct one; 
however, Oracle is reviewing the issue. See tracking bug 
3. Some defines for various types are moved to include/uapi/linux/sched/types.h

These patches are released under the MIT license.
