mm/numa: Remove BUG_ON() in __handle_mm_fault()
commit 107437febd495a50e2cd09c81bbaa84d30e57b07 upstream. Changing PTEs and PMDs to pte_numa & pmd_numa is done with the mmap_sem held for reading, which means a pmd can be instantiated and turned into a numa one while __handle_mm_fault() is examining the value of old_pmd. If that happens, __handle_mm_fault() should just return and let the page fault retry, instead of throwing an oops. This is handled by the test for pmd_trans_huge(*pmd) below.
