Subject[PATCH] mm/hugetlb: Fix NULL-pointer dereference on 5-level paging machine
Date
I've made mistake during converting hugetlb code to 5-level paging:
in huge_pte_alloc() we have to use p4d_alloc(), not p4d_offset().
Otherwise it leads to crash -- NULL-pointer dereference in pud_alloc()
if p4d table is not yet allocated.

It only can happen in 5-level paging mode. In 4-level paging mode
p4d_offset() always returns pgd, so we are fine.
