parent[ARM] Fix potential MMCI bug (diff)
[ARM] pass vma for flush_anon_page()
Since get_user_pages() may be used with processes other than the current process and calls flush_anon_page(), flush_anon_page() has to cope in some way with non-current processes. It may not be appropriate, or even desirable to flush a region of virtual memory cache in the current process when that is different to the process that we want the flush to occur for. Therefore, pass the vma into flush_anon_page() so that the architecture can work out whether the 'vmaddr' is for the current process or not. Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
