mm: Fix warning in insert_pfn()
In DAX mode a write pagefault can race with write(2) in the following way: CPU0 CPU1 write fault for mapped zero page (hole) dax_iomap_rw() iomap_apply() xfs_file_iomap_begin() - allocates blocks dax_iomap_actor() invalidate_inode_pages2_range() - invalidates radix tree entries in given range dax_iomap_pte_fault() grab_mapping_entry() - no entry found, creates empty ... xfs_file_iomap_begin() - finds already allocated block ... vmf_insert_mixed_mkwrite() - WARNs and does nothing because there is still zero page mapped in PTE unmap_mapping_pages() This race results in WARN_ON from insert_pfn() and is occasionally triggered by fstest generic/344. Note that the race is otherwise harmless as before write(2) on CPU0 is finished, we will invalidate page tables properly and thus user of mmap will see modified data from write(2) from that point on. So just restrict the warning only to the case when the PFN in PTE is not zero page.
