The patch titled
     Subject: mm/mmap.c: close race between munmap() and expand_upwards()/downwards()
has been removed from the -mm tree.  Its filename was
     mm-close-race-between-munmap-and-expand_upwards-downwards.patch

This patch was dropped because it was merged into mainline or a subsystem tree

------------------------------------------------------
From: "Kirill A. Shutemov" <kirill.shutemov@linux.intel.com>
Subject: mm/mmap.c: close race between munmap() and expand_upwards()/downwards()

VMA with VM_GROWSDOWN or VM_GROWSUP flag set can change their size under
mmap_read_lock().  It can lead to race with __do_munmap():

	Thread A			Thread B
__do_munmap()
  detach_vmas_to_be_unmapped()
  mmap_write_downgrade()
				expand_downwards()
				  vma->vm_start = address;
				  // The VMA now overlaps with
				  // VMAs detached by the Thread A
				// page fault populates expanded part
				// of the VMA
  unmap_region()
    // Zaps pagetables partly
    // populated by Thread B

Similar race exists for expand_upwards().

The fix is to avoid downgrading mmap_lock in __do_munmap() if detached
VMAs are next to VM_GROWSDOWN or VM_GROWSUP VMA.
