Hi Mike, this may be NFS-related fallout given that it appears in the
stack. Can you try this please?

mm/page_alloc: Correct return value of populated elements if bulk array is populated

Dave Jones reported the following

This made it into 5.13 final, and completely breaks NFSD for me
(Serving tcp v3 mounts). Existing mounts on clients hang, as do
new mounts from new clients. Rebooting the server back to rc7
everything recovers.

The commit b3b64ebd3822 ("mm/page_alloc: do bulk array bounds check after
checking populated elements") returns the wrong value if the array is
already populated which is interpreted as an allocation failure.

Fixes: b3b64ebd3822 ("mm/page_alloc: do bulk array bounds check after checking populated elements")
