Subject: [PATCH 3.14 21/39] sparc64: Fix bugs in get_user_pages_fast() wrt. THP.

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

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

From: "David S. Miller" <davem@...emloft.net>

[ Upstream commit 04df419de34104d8818b8c5cffaa062fa36d20ea ]

The large PMD path needs to check _PAGE_VALID not _PAGE_PRESENT, to
decide if it needs to bail and return 0.

pmd_large() should therefore just check _PAGE_PMD_HUGE.

Calls to gup_huge_pmd() are guarded with a check of pmd_large(), so we
just need to add a valid bit check.
