While this seems to be a clear improvement, it seems there is still a
bug in nouveau_svm.c around here as I see it calls hmm_vma_fault() but
never calls hmm_range_unregister() for its on stack range - and
hmm_vma_fault() still returns with the range registered.

As hmm_vma_fault() is only used by nouveau and is marked as
deprecated, I think we need to fix nouveau, either by dropping
hmm_range_fault(), or by adding the missing unregister to nouveau in
this patch.

Also, I see in linux-next that amdgpu_ttm.c has wrongly copied use of
this deprecated API, including these bugs...

amd folks: Can you please push a patch for your driver to stop using
hmm_vma_fault() and correct the use-after free? Ideally I'd like to
delete this function this merge cycle from hmm.git

Also if you missed it, I'm running a clean hmm.git that you can pull
into the AMD tree, if necessary, to get the changes that will go into
5.3 - if you need/wish to do this please consult with me before making a
merge commit, thanks. See:

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20190524124455.GB16845@ziepe.ca/

So Ralph, you'll need to resend this.

Thanks,
Jason
