Subject[PATCH] [8/16] POISON: Add various poison checks in mm/memory.c
Date

Bail out early when poisoned pages are found in page fault handling.
Since they are poisoned they should not be mapped freshly
into processes.

This is generally handled in the same way as OOM, just a different
error code is returned to the architecture code.
