Ok this is problematic too...  Because we for sure allow the page
fault flags to be both !ALLOW_RETRY and !TRIED (e.g., when doing GUP
and when __get_user_pages() is with locked==NULL and !FOLL_NOWAIT).
So current code will fall through the if condition and call
up_read(mmap_sem) even if above condition happened (while we shouldn't
because the GUP caller would assume the mmap_sem should be still
held).  So the correct check should be:

  if ((flags & FAULT_FLAG_ALLOW_RETRY) && !(flags & FAULT_FLAG_TRIED))

To make things easier, I'll just repost this single patch later.
Sorry for the noise.

Regards,
