Subject[PATCH] x86/mm: fix function name typo in pmd_read_atomic() comment
The function involved should be pte_offset_map_lock and we never have
function pmd_offset_map_lock defined.

Fixes: 26c191788f18 ("mm: pmd_read_atomic: fix 32bit PAE pmd walk vs pmd_populate SMP race conditio")

Signed-off-by: Wei Yang <>

Hope my understanding is correct.
