Oh, I just followed zero_user_segments below.

static inline void zero_user_segments(struct page *page,
unsigned start1, unsigned end1,
unsigned start2, unsigned end2)
void *kaddr = kmap_atomic(page);

BUG_ON(end1 > PAGE_SIZE || end2 > PAGE_SIZE);

if (end1 > start1)
memset(kaddr + start1, 0, end1 - start1);

if (end2 > start2)
memset(kaddr + start2, 0, end2 - start2);


Is this a wrong reference? Or, a bug?

Anyway I modified as below.
