This hunk rejects and I really can't figure out against which tree that
would apply.

My current merge tree happens to be 4.13.0-rc1 which was the latest when I
started this patch submission.  I can update my merge tree and reapply if need

Please send patches always against top of tree and not some random ancient
version of it.

I pulled in 4.14.0-rc4 and reapplied the patches and they went in
without conflict.  Hopefully it will be the same for you.

(And dealt with your question about applying the same change to
the !CONFIG_SMP case.)
