Subject[patch 09/18] remap_file_pages protection support: fix get_user_pages() on VM_NONUNIFORM vmas
From
Date

From: Paolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso <blaisorblade@yahoo.it>

get_user_pages may well call handle_mm_fault on present and valid PTEs. Signal
that by using VM_MAYREAD in the access_mask.

Also, get_user_pages() may give write faults on present readonly PTEs in
VM_NONUNIFORM areas (think of PTRACE_POKETEXT), so we must still do do_wp_page
even on VM_NONUNIFORM areas.

So, possibly use VM_MAYWRITE in the access_mask and check VM_NONUNIFORM in
maybe_mkwrite_file (new variant of maybe_mkwrite).
