Subject[PATCH] x86: hold mm->page_table_lock while doing vmalloc_sync


Take mm->page_table_lock while syncing the vmalloc region. This prevents
a race with the Xen pagetable pin/unpin code, which expects that the
page_table_lock is already held. If this race occurs, then Xen can see
an inconsistent page type (a page can either be read/write or a pagetable
page, and pin/unpin converts it between them), which will cause either
the pin or the set_p[gm]d to fail; either will crash the kernel.

vmalloc_sync_all() should be called rarely, so this extra use of
page_table_lock should not interfere with its normal users.

The mm pointer is stashed in the pgd page's index field, as that won't
be otherwise used for pgd pages.
