SubjectRe: [PATCH 09/16] sparc64: use the generic get_user_pages_fast code

Hmm. I'm not seeing anything obviously wrong in the generic gup conversion.

From the oops, I assume that the problem is that get_user_pages_fast()
returned an invalid page, causing the bad access later in
get_futex_key(). But that's odd too, considering that
get_user_pages_fast() had already accessed the page (both for looking
up the head, and for then doing things like SetPageReferenced(page)).

The only half-way subtle thing is the pte_access_permitted() movement,
but it looks like it matches what gup_pte_range() did in the original
sparc64 code. And the address masking is done the same way too, as far
as I can tell.

So clearly there's something wrong there, but I'm not seeing it. Maybe
I'm incorrectly looking at that pte case, and the problem happened

Anyway, I suspect some sparc64 person needs to delve into it.

I know this got reviewed by sparc64 people (the final commit message
only has a single Reviewed-by, but I see an Ack by Davem in my maill
that seems to have gotten lost by the time the patch made it in), but
maybe actually nobody ever _tested_ it until it hit my tree?
