Subject[PATCH 02/11] x86/cpa: In populate_pgd, don't set the pgd entry until it's populated
Date
This avoids pointless races in which another CPU or task might see a
partially populated global pgd entry. These races should normally
be harmless, but, if another CPU propagates the entry via
vmalloc_fault and then populate_pgd fails (due to memory allocation
failure, for example), this prevents a use-after-free of the pgd
entry.
