    Subject[ 22/89] s390/thp: implement pmdp_set_wrprotect()
    3.7-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


    From: Gerald Schaefer <>

    commit be3286507dab888d4aad9f91fd6ff5202b24cd5b upstream.

    On s390, an architecture-specific implementation of the function
    pmdp_set_wrprotect() is missing and the generic version is currently
    being used. The generic version does not flush the tlb as it would be
    needed on s390 when modifying an active pmd, which can lead to subtle
    tlb errors on s390 when using transparent hugepages.

    This patch adds an s390-specific implementation of pmdp_set_wrprotect()
    including the missing tlb flush.
