The cleaned removed the "& ~" and that was enough to quickly tell the
cleaned up version was wrong.

What I should have noticed right away as well is that the code was
already wrong, sorry. That code doesn't require a noop code cleanup,
it requires a fix and the "& ~" needs to stay.

This isn't going to make any difference upstream until the uffd-wp
support is merged so it is enough to queue it in Peter's queue, or you
can merge it independently.

Thanks,
Andrea

Subject: [PATCH 1/1] uffd: wp: clear VM_UFFD_MISSING or VM_UFFD_WP during
userfaultfd_register()

If the registration is repeated without VM_UFFD_MISSING or VM_UFFD_WP
they need to be cleared. Currently setting UFFDIO_REGISTER_MODE_WP
returns -EINVAL, so this patch is a noop until the
UFFDIO_REGISTER_MODE_WP support is applied.
