ppc32.

It's not really an oops - it's a warning. add_to_pagemap() is doing a
put_user() inside pagemap_pte_range->pte_offset_map->kmap_atomic.

A known bug, I'm afraid.

How to fix?

- double-buffer the data to be copied to userspace or

- take a local copy of the pte page then work on that instead or

- play copy_to_user_inatomic() tricks.

It would be really nice to get the maps4 stuff merged this time around but
it is looking unlikely.

hm. Not sure how that happened. The arch code thinks we're running in
user mode.
