Subject[188/262] powerpc: gup_huge_pmd() return 0 if pte changes
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Andrea Arcangeli <aarcange@redhat.com>

commit cf592bf768c4fa40282b8fce58a80820065de2cb upstream.

powerpc didn't return 0 in that case, if it's rolling back the *nr pointer
it should also return zero to avoid adding pages to the array at the wrong
offset.
