mm: fix infinite loop in filemap_fault
filemap_fault will go into an infinite loop if ->readpage() fails asynchronously. AFAICS the bug was introduced by this commit, which removed the wait after the final readpage: commit d00806b183152af6d24f46f0c33f14162ca1262a Author: Nick Piggin <> Date: Thu Jul 19 01:46:57 2007 -0700 mm: fix fault vs invalidate race for linear mappings Fix by reintroducing the wait_on_page_locked() after ->readpage() to make sure the page is up-to-date before jumping back to the beginning of the function. I've noticed this while testing nfs exporting on fuse. The patch fixes it. Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <> Cc: Nick Piggin <> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
