[PATCH 3.13.y-ckt 17/80] x86: mm: move mmap_sem unlock from mm_fault_error() to caller

3.13.11-ckt17 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Linus Torvalds <torvalds at linux-foundation.org>

commit 7fb08eca45270d0ae86e1ad9d39c40b7a55d0190 upstream.

This replaces four copies in various stages of mm_fault_error() handling
with just a single one.  It will also allow for more natural placement
of the unlocking after some further cleanup.
