Subject: [124/272] mm: fix hugepage migration

2.6.37-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Hugh Dickins <hughd@...gle.com>

commit fd4a4663db293bfd5dc20fb4113977f62895e550 upstream.

2.6.37 added an unmap_and_move_huge_page() for memory failure recovery,
but its anon_vma handling was still based around the 2.6.35 conventions.
Update it to use page_lock_anon_vma, get_anon_vma, page_unlock_anon_vma,
drop_anon_vma in the same way as we're now changing unmap_and_move().

I don't particularly like to propose this for stable when I've not seen
its problems in practice nor tested the solution: but it's clearly out of
synch at present.
