Subject[PATCH] [37/223] powerpc: Fix call to subpage_protection()
Date
2.6.35-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Michael Neuling <mikey@neuling.org>

commit 1c2c25c78740b2796c7c06640784cb6732fa4907 upstream.

In:
powerpc/mm: Fix pgtable cache cleanup with CONFIG_PPC_SUBPAGE_PROT
commit d28513bc7f675d28b479db666d572e078ecf182d
Author: David Gibson <david@gibson.dropbear.id.au>

subpage_protection() was changed to to take an mm rather a pgdir but it
didn't change calling site in hashpage_preload(). The change wasn't
noticed at compile time since hashpage_preload() used a void* as the
parameter to subpage_protection().

This is obviously wrong and can trigger the following crash when
CONFIG_SLAB, CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB, CONFIG_PPC_64K_PAGES
CONFIG_PPC_SUBPAGE_PROT are enabled.
