What?! That's just broken. vm_insert_pfn_prot returns an errno, so
this patch introduces a bug where sometimes 'ret' contains a vm_fault_t
and sometimes contains an errno. That's exactly the kind of thing this
patch series is supposed to be *preventing*, not introducing!

I'll send a replacement patch series to do this properly.
