Subject[patch] filemap_getpage can block when MAP_NONBLOCK specified
Hello,

We will return NULL from filemap_getpage when a page does not exist in the
page cache and MAP_NONBLOCK is specified, here:

page = find_get_page(mapping, pgoff);
if (!page) {
if (nonblock)
return NULL;
goto no_cached_page;
}

But we forget to do so when the page in the cache is not uptodate. The
following could result in a blocking call:

/*
* Ok, found a page in the page cache, now we need to check
* that it's up-to-date.
*/
if (!PageUptodate(page))
goto page_not_uptodate;

Patch attached.

Thanks,

Jeff
