Subject[PATCH 3.17 02/47] mm/vmpressure.c: fix race in vmpressure_work_fn()
Date
3.17-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org>

commit 91b57191cfd152c02ded0745250167d0263084f8 upstream.

In some android devices, there will be a "divide by zero" exception.
vmpr->scanned could be zero before spin_lock(&vmpr->sr_lock).
