Subject: [PATCH] mm: Prevent mapping typed pages to userspace
Date: Mon, 28 Jan 2019 21:38:30 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20190129053830.3749-1-willy@infradead.org> (raw)

Pages which use page_type must never be mapped to userspace as it would
destroy their page type.  Add an explicit check for this instead of
assuming that kernel drivers always get this right.
