Subject[PATCH 2/6] mm/rmap: map_pte() was not handling private ZONE_DEVICE page properly v3
Date
From: Ralph Campbell <rcampbell@nvidia.com>

Private ZONE_DEVICE pages use a special pte entry and thus are not
present. Properly handle this case in map_pte(), it is already handled
in check_pte(), the map_pte() part was lost in some rebase most probably.

Without this patch the slow migration path can not migrate back to any
private ZONE_DEVICE memory to regular memory. This was found after stress
testing migration back to system memory. This ultimatly can lead to the CPU
constantly page fault looping on the special swap entry.

Changes since v2:
- add comments explaining what is going on
Changes since v1:
- properly lock pte directory in map_pte()
