Subject[PATCH 4.0 10/72] Revert "MIPS: Remove race window in page fault handling"
Date
4.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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


From: Lars Persson <lars.persson@axis.com>

Commit 5b9593f3bccb9904f260f9ad7f184e1d2921bd1e upstream.

Revert commit 2a4a8b1e5d9d ("MIPS: Remove race window in page fault
handling") because it increased the number of flushed dcache pages and
became a performance problem for some workloads.
