Subject[PATCH] mm/gup: fix null pointer dereference detected by coverity
Date
In fixup_user_fault(), it is possible that unlocked is NULL,
so we should test unlocked before using it.

For example, in arch/arc/kernel/process.c, NULL is passed
to fixup_user_fault().

SYSCALL_DEFINE3(arc_usr_cmpxchg, int *, uaddr, int, expected, int, new)
{
...
ret = fixup_user_fault(current, current->mm, (unsigned long) uaddr,
FAULT_FLAG_WRITE, NULL);
...
}

Fixes: 4a9e1cda2748 ("mm: bring in additional flag for fixup_user_fault to signal unlock")
