mm/huge_memory.c: fix potential NULL pointer dereference
Libin [Wed, 11 Sep 2013 21:20:38 +0000 (14:20 -0700)]
commit a8f531ebc33052642b4bd7b812eedf397108ce64 upstream.

In collapse_huge_page() there is a race window between releasing the
mmap_sem read lock and taking the mmap_sem write lock, so find_vma() may
return NULL.  So check the return value to avoid NULL pointer dereference.

collapse_huge_page
khugepaged_alloc_page
up_read(&mm->mmap_sem)
down_write(&mm->mmap_sem)
vma = find_vma(mm, address)
