Subject[PATCH 1/2] mm: fix NULL ptr dereference in migrate_pages
Date
Commit 3268c63 ("mm: fix move/migrate_pages() race on task struct") has added
an odd construct where 'mm' is checked for being NULL, and if it is, it would
get dereferenced anyways by mput()ing it.

This would lead to the following NULL ptr deref and BUG() when calling
migrate_pages() with a pid that has no mm struct:
