Thanks! We should return EPERM in that case.

However, the check for VM_UFFD_WP && !VM_MAYWRITE went in after commit
cab350afcbc9. I think it is more accurate to say that the issue was
introduced with commit 63b2d4174c4a ("Introduce the new uffd-wp APIs
for userspace."). The convention in userfaultfd_register() is that the
return code is set before testing condition which could cause return.
Therefore, when 63b2d4174c4a added the VM_UFFD_WP && !VM_MAYWRITE check,
it should have also added the 'ret = -EPERM;' statement.

With changes to commit message and Fixes tag,
