      mm/mempolicy: Allow lookup_node() to handle fatal signal · ba841078
      Peter Xu authored
      lookup_node() uses gup to pin the page and get node information.  It
      checks against ret>=0 assuming the page will be filled in.  However it's
      also possible that gup will return zero, for example, when the thread is
      quickly killed with a fatal signal.  Teach lookup_node() to gracefully
      return an error -EFAULT if it happens.
      
      Meanwhile, initialize "page" to NULL to avoid potential risk of
      exploiting the pointer.
