[IA64] Failure to grow RBS
Andrew Burgess [Thu, 16 Aug 2007 17:30:46 +0000 (10:30 -0700)]
There is a bug in the ia64_do_page_fault code that can cause a failure
to grow the register backing store, or any mapping that is marked as
VM_GROWSUP if the mapping is the highest mapped area of memory.

When the address accessed is below the first mapping the previous mapping
is returned as NULL, and this case is handled.  However, when the address
accessed is above the highest mapping the vma returned is NULL, this
case is not handled correctly, and it fails to spot that this access
might require an existing mapping to grow upwards.
