Subject[PATCH 4.14 20/95] mm/hugetlb: fix NULL-pointer dereference on 5-level paging machine
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

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

commit f4f0a3d85b50a65a348e2b8635041d6b30f01deb upstream.

I made a 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.
