Subject: [PATCH 78/78] ceph: avoid 32-bit page index overflow

commit 6285bc231277419255f3498d3eb5ddc9f8e7fe79 upstream.

A pgoff_t is defined (by default) to have type (unsigned long).  On
architectures such as i686 that's a 32-bit type.  The ceph address
space code was attempting to produce 64 bit offsets by shifting a
page's index by PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT, but the result was not what was
desired because the shift occurred before the result got promoted
to 64 bits.

Fix this by converting all uses of page->index used in this way to
use the page_offset() macro, which ensures the 64-bit result has the
intended value.

This fixes http://tracker.newdream.net/issues/3112
