Subject[PATCH] userfaultfd: replace ENOSPC with ESRCH in case mm has gone during copy/zeropage
Date
When the process exit races with outstanding mcopy_atomic, it would be
better to return ESRCH error. When such race occurs the process and it's mm
are going away and returning "no such process" to the uffd monitor seems
better fit than ENOSPC.

The man-pages update is ready and I'll send it out once the patch is
merged.
