[PATCH 4.9 028/177] userfaultfd: shmem: __do_fault requires VM_FAULT_NOPAGE

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

4.9-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Andrea Arcangeli <aarcange@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 6bbc4a4144b1a69743022ac68dfaf6e7d993abb9 ]

__do_fault assumes vmf->page has been initialized and is valid if
VM_FAULT_NOPAGE is not returned by vma->vm_ops->fault(vma, vmf).

handle_userfault() in turn should return VM_FAULT_NOPAGE if it doesn't
return VM_FAULT_SIGBUS or VM_FAULT_RETRY (the other two possibilities).

This VM_FAULT_NOPAGE case is only invoked when signal are pending and it
didn't matter for anonymous memory before. It only started to matter
since shmem was introduced. hugetlbfs also takes a different path and
doesn't exercise __do_fault.
