[PATCH tip/x86/asm] uprobes: __create_xol_area() must nullify xol_mapping.fault

From: Oleg Nesterov
Date: Sat Feb 27 2016 - 17:11:44 EST

As Jiri pointed out, the recent commit f872f5400cc0 "mm: Add a
vm_special_mapping.fault() method" breaks uprobes. __create_xol_area()
doesn't initialize the new ->fault() method and this obviously leads to
kernel crash when the application tries to execute the probed insn after
bp hit.

We probably want to add uprobes_special_mapping_fault(), this allows to
turn xol_area->xol_mapping into a single instance of vm_special_mapping.
But we need a simple fix, so lets change __create_xol() to nullify the
new member as Jiri suggests.
