Subject[patch 2/2] mm: remove task assumptions from swap token
Date
From: Hugh Dickins <hugh.dickins@tiscali.co.uk>

grab_swap_token() should not make any assumptions about the running
process as the swap token is an attribute of the address space and the
faulting mm is not necessarily current->mm.

This fixes get_user_pages() from kernel threads which would blow up
when encountering a swapped out page and grab_swap_token()
dereferencing the unset for kernel threads current->mm.
