Subject[PATCH 01/10] x86, pkeys: add fault handling for PF_PK page fault bit
From
Date

From: Dave Hansen <dave.hansen@linux.intel.com>

PF_PK means that a memory access violated the protection key
access restrictions. It is unconditionally an access_error()
because the permissions set on the VMA don't matter (the PKRU
value overrides it), and we never "resolve" PK faults (like
how a COW can "resolve write fault).
