parentkasan: fix variable 'tag' set but not used warning (diff)
mm/memory.c: fix modifying of page protection by insert_pfn()
Aneesh has reported that PPC triggers the following warning when excercising DAX code: IP set_pte_at+0x3c/0x190 LR insert_pfn+0x208/0x280 Call Trace: insert_pfn+0x68/0x280 dax_iomap_pte_fault.isra.7+0x734/0xa40 __xfs_filemap_fault+0x280/0x2d0 do_wp_page+0x48c/0xa40 __handle_mm_fault+0x8d0/0x1fd0 handle_mm_fault+0x140/0x250 __do_page_fault+0x300/0xd60 handle_page_fault+0x18 Now that is WARN_ON in set_pte_at which is VM_WARN_ON(pte_hw_valid(*ptep) && !pte_protnone(*ptep)); The problem is that on some architectures set_pte_at() cannot cope with a situation where there is already some (different) valid entry present. Use ptep_set_access_flags() instead to modify the pfn which is built to deal with modifying existing PTE.
