Subject[PATCH v11 26/26] arm64/mm: add speculative page fault
Date
From: Mahendran Ganesh <opensource.ganesh@gmail.com>

This patch enables the speculative page fault on the arm64
architecture.

I completed spf porting in 4.9. From the test result,
we can see app launching time improved by about 10% in average.
For the apps which have more than 50 threads, 15% or even more
improvement can be got.

[handle_speculative_fault() is no more returning the vma pointer]
