Merge branch 'merge' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/benh/powerpc
Pull powerpc mremap fix from Ben Herrenschmidt: "This is the patch that I had sent after -rc8 and which we decided to wait before merging. It's based on a different tree than my -next branch (it needs some pre-reqs that were in -rc4 or so while my -next is based on -rc1) so I left it as a separate branch for your to pull. It's identical to the request I did 2 or 3 weeks back. This fixes crashes in mremap with THP on powerpc. The fix however requires a small change in the generic code. It moves a condition into a helper we can override from the arch which is harmless, but it *also* slightly changes the order of the set_pmd and the withdraw & deposit, which should be fine according to Kirill (who wrote that code) but I agree -rc8 is a bit late... It was acked by Kirill and Andrew told me to just merge it via powerpc" * 'merge' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/benh/powerpc: powerpc/thp: Fix crash on mremap
