mm: revert 0def08e3 ("mm/mempolicy.c: check return code of check_range")
Revert commit 0def08e3acc2 because check_range can't fail in migrate_to_node with considering current usecases. Quote from Johannes : I think it makes sense to revert. Not because of the semantics, but I : just don't see how check_range() could even fail for this callsite: : : 1. we pass mm->mmap->vm_start in there, so we should not fail due to : find_vma() : : 2. we pass MPOL_MF_DISCONTIG_OK, so the discontig checks do not apply : and so can not fail : : 3. we pass MPOL_MF_MOVE | MPOL_MF_MOVE_ALL, the page table loops will : continue until addr == end, so we never fail with -EIO And I added a new VM_BUG_ON for checking migrate_to_node's future usecase which might pass to MPOL_MF_STRICT.
