OK. Below is the updated patch that should fix this fully. Can you confirm?

Thanks,

From: Venkatesh Pallipadi <venkatesh.pallipadi@intel.com>
Subject: [PATCH] VM, x86 PAT: Change implementation of is_linear_pfn_mapping

Use of vma->vm_pgoff to identify the pfnmaps that are fully mapped at
mmap time is broken, as vm_pgoff can also be set when full mapping is
not setup at mmap time.
http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=123383810628583&w=2

Change the logic to overload VM_NONLINEAR flag along with VM_PFNMAP to
mean full mapping setup at mmap time. This distinction is needed by
x86 PAT code.

Regression reported at
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12800
