    Encode huge page size for VM_FAULT_HWPOISON errors · aa50d3a7
    Andi Kleen authored
    This fixes a problem introduced with the hugetlb hwpoison handling
    The user space SIGBUS signalling wants to know the size of the hugepage
    that caused a HWPOISON fault.
    Unfortunately the architecture page fault handlers do not have easy
    access to the struct page.
    Pass the information out in the fault error code instead.
    I added a separate VM_FAULT_HWPOISON_LARGE bit for this case and encode
    the hpage index in some free upper bits of the fault code. The small
    page hwpoison keeps stays with the VM_FAULT_HWPOISON name to minimize
    Also add code to hugetlb.h to convert that index into a page shift.
    Will be used in a further patch.
