    Subject[PATCH 1/1] arm: fault.c: correct how the tsk->[maj|min]_flt gets incremented
    commit 8878a539ff19a43cf3729e7562cd528f490246ae was done by me
    to make the page fault handler retryable as well as interruptible.

    Due to this commit, there is a mistake in the way in which
    tsk->[maj|min]_flt counter gets incremented for VM_FAULT_ERROR:
    If VM_FAULT_ERROR is returned in the fault flags by handle_mm_fault,
    then either maj_flt or min_flt will get incremented. This is wrong
    as in the case of a VM_FAULT_ERROR we need to be skip ahead to the
    error handling code in do_page_fault.

    Added a check after the call to __do_page_fault() to check for
    (fault & VM_FAULT_ERROR).
