Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.4 039/101] IB/mlx4: Take write semaphore when changing the vma struct
Date
From: Maor Gottlieb <maorg@mellanox.com>

[ Upstream commit 22c3653d04bd0c67b75e99d85e0c0bdf83947df5 ]

When the driver disassociate user context, it changes the vma to
anonymous by setting the vm_ops to null and zap the vma ptes.

In order to avoid race in the kernel, we need to take write lock
before we change the vma entries.

Fixes: ae184ddeca5db ('IB/mlx4_ib: Disassociate support')
