VM: skip the stack guard page lookup in get_user_pages only for mlock
commit a1fde08c74e90accd62d4cfdbf580d2ede938fe7 upstream.
The logic in __get_user_pages() used to skip the stack guard page lookup
whenever the caller wasn't interested in seeing what the actual page
was. But Michel Lespinasse points out that there are cases where we
don't care about the physical page itself (so 'pages' may be NULL), but
do want to make sure a page is mapped into the virtual address space.
So using the existence of the "pages" array as an indication of whether
to look up the guard page or not isn't actually so great, and we really
should just use the FOLL_MLOCK bit. But because that bit was only set
for the VM_LOCKED case (and not all vma's necessarily have it, even for
mlock()), we couldn't do that originally.
Fix that by moving the VM_LOCKED check deeper into the call-chain, which
actually simplifies many things. Now mlock() gets simpler, and we can
also check for FOLL_MLOCK in __get_user_pages() and the code ends up
much more straightforward.
