[PATCH 4.4 02/45] thp: fix MADV_DONTNEED vs clear soft dirty race




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

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

From: Kirill A. Shutemov <kirill.shutemov@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 5b7abeae3af8c08c577e599dd0578b9e3ee6687b upstream.

Yet another instance of the same race.

Fix is identical to change_huge_pmd().

See "thp: fix MADV_DONTNEED vs.  numa balancing race" for more details.
