If there is a bug, it shouldn't be fixed part way through a series. This makes it
difficult to backport the fix.

Please split this out as an independent patch with a 'Fixes:' tag for the commit that
introduced the bug.

So this patch does two things? That is rarely a good idea. Again, this makes it difficult
to backport the fix.

If you were going to reuse this, that would be a bug. But because the only page that is
being mapped, is mapped to PAGE_SIZE, all the top bits will be 0. The offset calls are
boiler-plate. It doesn't look intentional, but its harmless.

Please separate out the potential NULL-dereference bits so there is a clean stand-alone
fix that can be sent to the stable trees.
