Subject[PATCH 4/4] mm: use the cached page for filemap_fault
Date
If we drop the mmap_sem we have to redo the vma lookup which requires
redoing the fault handler. Chances are we will just come back to the
same page, so save this page in our vmf->cached_page and reuse it in the
next loop through the fault handler.
