        ret = follow_pfn(vma, vaddr, pfn);
        if (ret) {
                bool unlocked = false;
 
                ret = fixup_user_fault(NULL, mm, vaddr,
                                       FAULT_FLAG_REMOTE |
                                       (write_fault ?  FAULT_FLAG_WRITE : 0),
                                       &unlocked);
                if (unlocked)
                        return -EAGAIN;
 
                if (ret)
                        return ret;
 
                ret = follow_pfn(vma, vaddr, pfn);      <--------------- [1]
        }

So imo the 2nd follow_pfn() [1] could be racy if without the unlocked check.
