3.16.7-ckt8 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Naoya Horiguchi <n-horiguchi at ah.jp.nec.com>

commit 9fbc1f635fd0bd28cb32550211bf095753ac637a upstream.

If __unmap_hugepage_range() tries to unmap the address range over which
hugepage migration is on the way, we get the wrong page because pte_page()
doesn't work for migration entries.  This patch simply clears the pte for
migration entries as we do for hwpoison entries.
