4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Marc Zyngier <marc.zyngier@arm.com>

commit d6dbdd3c8558cad3b6d74cc357b408622d122331 upstream.

Under memory pressure, we start ageing pages, which amounts to parsing
the page tables. Since we don't want to allocate any extra level,
we pass NULL for our private allocation cache. Which means that
stage2_get_pud() is allowed to fail. This results in the following
splat:

The trivial fix is to handle this NULL pud value early, rather than
dereferencing it blindly.
