Subject[PATCH 1/2] mm: replace BUG_ON in vm_insert_page with a return of an error
Replace BUG_ON(vma->vm_flags & VM_PFNMAP) in vm_insert_page with
WARN_ON_ONCE and returning an error. This is to ensure users of the
vm_insert_page that set VM_PFNMAP are notified of the wrong flag usage
and get an indication of an error without panicing the kernel.
This will help identifying drivers that need to clear VM_PFNMAP before
using dmabuf system heap which is moving to use vm_insert_page.
