Subject[31/37] mm: fix possible off-by-one in walk_pte_range()
2.6.25-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Johannes Weiner <hannes@saeurebad.de>
commit 556637cdabcd5918c7d4a1a2679b8f86fc81e891 upstream


After the loop in walk_pte_range() pte might point to the first address after
the pmd it walks. The pte_unmap() is then applied to something bad.

Spotted by Roel Kluin and Andreas Schwab.
