mlock: make mlock error return Posixly Correct
Rework Posix error return for mlock(). Posix requires error code for mlock*() system calls for some conditions that differ from what kernel low level functions, such as get_user_pages(), return for those conditions. For more info, see: http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=121750892930775&w=2 This patch provides the same translation of get_user_pages() error codes to posix specified error codes in the context of the mlock rework for unevictable lru.
