Subject[PATCH 1/4] Revert hugetlbfs: Use i_mmap_rwsem to address page fault/truncate race
Date
Commit 87bf91d39bb5 ("hugetlbfs: Use i_mmap_rwsem to address page
fault/truncate race") was made possible because a prior
commit c0d0381ade79 ("hugetlbfs: use i_mmap_rwsem for more pmd sharing
synchronization") took i_mmap_rwsem in read mode during huge page
faults. Using i_mmap_rwsem for pmd sharing synchronization has proven
problematic and will be removed in later patches. As a result, the
assumptions upon which this patch was based will no longer be true.

This reverts commit 87bf91d39bb52b688fb411d668fbe7df278b29ae

Fixes 7bf91d39bb5 ("hugetlbfs: Use i_mmap_rwsem to address page
fault/truncate race")
