Subject[PATCH 08/10] x86: mm: Restore original pte_special check
Date
Commit b38af4721f59 ("x86,mm: fix pte_special versus pte_numa") adjusted
the pte_special check to take into account that a special pte had SPECIAL
and neither PRESENT nor PROTNONE. Now that NUMA hinting PTEs are no
longer modifying _PAGE_PRESENT it should be safe to restore the original
pte_special behaviour.
