commit 1a541b4e3cd6f5795022514114854b3e1345f24e upstream.

6910fa1 ("arm64: enable PTE type bit in the mask for pte_modify") fixes
a problem whereby a large block of PROT_NONE mapped memory is
incorrectly mapped as block descriptors when mprotect is called.

Unfortunately, a subtle bug was introduced by this fix to the THP logic.

If one mmaps a large block of memory, then faults it such that it is
collapsed into THPs; resulting calls to mprotect on this area of memory
will lead to incorrect table descriptors being written instead of block
descriptors. This is because pmd_modify calls pte_modify which is now
allowed to modify the type of the page table entry.

This patch reverts commit 6910fa16dbe142f6a0fd0fd7c249f9883ff7fc8a, and
fixes the problem it was trying to address by adjusting PAGE_NONE to
represent a table entry. Thus no change in pte type is required when
moving from PROT_NONE to a different protection.

[SteveC: backported 1a541b4e3cd6f5795022514114854b3e1345f24e to 4.1 and
 4.2 stable. Just one minor fix to second part to allow patch to apply
cleanly, no logic changed.]

Hi,
I'm sending this backport to be applied to both 4.1 and 4.2 stable
trees, as the upstream commit did not cherry-pick cleanly. No logic
was changed from the upstream commit (essentially just the context
surrounding the second part of the patch changed a bit).

This is the first manual fix I've sent to stable@vger.kernel.org, so
please do let me know if I need to do anything a little differently in
future.

Cheers,

Patch
