UPSTREAM: mm/pagewalk.c: report holes in hugetlb ranges
commit 373c4557d2aa362702c4c2d41288fb1e54990b7c upstream.
This matters at least for the mincore syscall, which will otherwise copy
uninitialized memory from the page allocator to userspace. It is
probably also a correctness error for /proc/$pid/pagemap, but I haven't
Removing the `walk->hugetlb_entry` condition in walk_hugetlb_range() has
no effect because the caller already checks for that.
This only reports holes in hugetlb ranges to callers who have specified
a hugetlb_entry callback.
This issue was found using an AFL-based fuzzer.
- don't crash on ->pte_hole==NULL (Andrew Morton)
- add Cc stable (Andrew Morton)
Changed for 4.4/4.9 stable backport:
- fix up conflict in the huge_pte_offset() call
TEST=Build and run
