vm: fix mlock() on stack guard page
Linus Torvalds [Tue, 12 Apr 2011 21:15:51 +0000 (14:15 -0700)]
Commit 53a7706d5ed8 ("mlock: do not hold mmap_sem for extended periods
of time") changed mlock() to care about the exact number of pages that
__get_user_pages() had brought it.  Before, it would only care about
errors.

And that doesn't work, because we also handled one page specially in
__mlock_vma_pages_range(), namely the stack guard page.  So when that
case was handled, the number of pages that the function returned was off
by one.  In particular, it could be zero, and then the caller would end
up not making any progress at all.

Rather than try to fix up that off-by-one error for the mlock case
specially, this just moves the logic to handle the stack guard page
into__get_user_pages() itself, thus making all the counts come out
right automatically.
