2.6.39-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Hugh Dickins <hughd@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit e0dcd8a05be438b3d2e49ef61441ea3a463663f8 upstream.

Al Viro observes that in the hugetlb case, handle_mm_fault() may return
a value of the kind ENOSPC when its caller is expecting a value of the
kind VM_FAULT_SIGBUS: fix alloc_huge_page()'s failure returns.
