Subject[PATCH 3/6] mm/hmm: fix race between hmm_mirror_unregister() and mmu_notifier callback
Date
From: Ralph Campbell <rcampbell@nvidia.com>

In hmm_mirror_unregister(), mm->hmm is set to NULL and then
mmu_notifier_unregister_no_release() is called. That creates a small
window where mmu_notifier can call mmu_notifier_ops with mm->hmm equal
to NULL. Fix this by first unregistering mmu notifier callbacks and
then setting mm->hmm to NULL.

Similarly in hmm_register(), set mm->hmm before registering mmu_notifier
callbacks so callback functions always see mm->hmm set.
