[PATCH] invalidate: remove_mapping() fix
If remove_mapping() failed to remove the page from its mapping, don't go and mark it not uptodate! Makes kernel go dead. (Actually, I don't think the ClearPageUptodate is needed there at all). Says Nick Piggin: "Right, it isn't needed because at this point the page is guaranteed by remove_mapping to have no references (except us) and cannot pick up any new ones because it is removed from pagecache. We can delete it." Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Acked-by: Nick Piggin <nickpiggin@yahoo.com.au> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
