Subject[PATCH 1/2] mm, Make __get_user_pages return -EHWPOISON for HWPOISON page
From
Date
With this patch, the caller of __get_user_pages can distinguish
HWPOISON page from general FAULT page. This is needed by KVM, where
UCR MCE should be relayed to guest for HWPOISON page, while
instruction emulation and MMIO will be tried for general FAULT page.
