Description Marcel Holtmann 2007-08-17 16:02:43 EDT
From Adam Litke's mail to LKML (http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/1/29/180):

[PATCH] Don't allow the stack to grow into hugetlb reserved regions
    
    When expanding the stack, we don't currently check if the VMA will cross
    into an area of the address space that is reserved for hugetlb pages.
    Subsequent faults on the expanded portion of such a VMA will confuse the
    low-level MMU code, resulting in an OOPS.  Check for this.
