Subject[PATCH v11 25/26] powerpc/mm: add speculative page fault
Date
This patch enable the speculative page fault on the PowerPC
architecture.

This will try a speculative page fault without holding the mmap_sem,
if it returns with VM_FAULT_RETRY, the mmap_sem is acquired and the
traditional page fault processing is done.

The speculative path is only tried for multithreaded process as there is no
risk of contention on the mmap_sem otherwise.
