Subject[PATCH 1/2] mm/mempolicy: Allow lookup_node() to handle fatal signal
Date
lookup_node() uses gup to pin the page and get node information.  It
checks against ret>=0 assuming the page will be filled in. However
it's also possible that gup will return zero, for example, when the
thread is quickly killed with a fatal signal. Teach lookup_node() to
gracefully return an error -EFAULT if it happens.

Meanwhile, initialize "page" to NULL to avoid potential risk of
exploiting the pointer.
