Subject[PATCH 4.19 219/313] um: Avoid marking pages with "changed protection"
Date
4.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

[ Upstream commit 8892d8545f2d0342b9c550defbfb165db237044b ]

Changing protection is a very high cost operation in UML
because in addition to an extra syscall it also interrupts
mmap merge sequences generated by the tlb.

While the condition is not particularly common it is worth
avoiding.
