Subject[PATCH 4.14 288/496] mm/mempolicy.c: avoid use uninitialized preferred_node
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Yisheng Xie <xieyisheng1@huawei.com>

[ Upstream commit 8970a63e965b43288c4f5f40efbc2bbf80de7f16 ]

Alexander reported a use of uninitialized memory in __mpol_equal(),
which is caused by incorrect use of preferred_node.

When mempolicy in mode MPOL_PREFERRED with flags MPOL_F_LOCAL, it uses
numa_node_id() instead of preferred_node, however, __mpol_equal() uses
preferred_node without checking whether it is MPOL_F_LOCAL or not.

[akpm@linux-foundation.org: slight comment tweak]
