SubjectRe: [PATCH] mm, arch: Complete pagefault_disable abstraction
From
Date

For reference, here's the -rt patch that goes on top:

---
Subject: rt: Preemptable pagefault_disable()
From: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl>
Date: Wed Oct 05 14:20:57 CEST 2011
Implement a preemptable pagefault_disable() by keeping a per-task
pagefault_disabled counter.

This allows disabling of the pagefault handler (and thus avoiding the
recursive fault/mmap_sem issues) without disabling preemption.

Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl>
