Subject[PATCH 4.9 059/148] thp: reduce indentation level in change_huge_pmd()
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Kirill A. Shutemov <kirill.shutemov@linux.intel.com>

commit 0a85e51d37645e9ce57e5e1a30859e07810ed07c upstream.

Patch series "thp: fix few MADV_DONTNEED races"

For MADV_DONTNEED to work properly with huge pages, it's critical to not
clear pmd intermittently unless you hold down_write(mmap_sem).

Otherwise MADV_DONTNEED can miss the THP which can lead to userspace
breakage.

See example of such race in commit message of patch 2/4.

All these races are found by code inspection. I haven't seen them
triggered. I don't think it's worth to apply them to stable@.

This patch (of 4):

Restructure code in preparation for a fix.
