mm: fix find_vma_prev
commit 83cd904d271ba960c53f3adbb037f3486518f1e6 upstream. Commit 6bd4837de96e ("mm: simplify find_vma_prev()") broke memory management on PA-RISC. After application of the patch, programs that allocate big arrays on the stack crash with segfault, for example, this will crash if compiled without optimization: int main() { char array[200000]; array[199999] = 0; return 0; } The reason is that PA-RISC has up-growing stack and the stack is usually the last memory area. In the above example, a page fault happens above the stack. Previously, if we passed too high address to find_vma_prev, it returned NULL and stored the last VMA in *pprev. After "simplify find_vma_prev" change, it stores NULL in *pprev. Consequently, the stack area is not found and it is not expanded, as it used to be before the change. This patch restores the old behavior and makes it return the last VMA in *pprev if the requested address is higher than address of any other VMA.
