commit 0253d634e0803a8376a0d88efee0bf523d8673f9
Author: Naoya Horiguchi <n-horiguchi@...jp.nec.com>
Date:   Wed Jul 23 14:00:19 2014 -0700
mm: hugetlb: fix copy_hugetlb_page_range()

is now in Linus's tree: so the original patch is good to go into
your -stables, so long as you add 0253d634e080 on top.
