[PATCH] hugetlb: Fix clear_user_highpage arguments

From: Ralf Baechle
Date: Fri Sep 28 2007 - 12:35:59 EST

The virtual address space argument of clear_user_highpage is supposed to
be the virtual address where the page being cleared will eventually be
mapped. This allows architectures with virtually indexed caches a few
clever tricks. That sort of trick falls over in painful ways if the
virtual address argument is wrong.
