4.15-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Dan Williams <dan.j.willi...@intel.com>

commit 230f5a8969d8345fc9bbe3683f068246cf1be4b8 upstream.

Gerd reports that ->i_mode may contain other bits besides S_IFCHR. Use
S_ISCHR() instead. Otherwise, get_user_pages_longterm() may fail on
device-dax instances when those are meant to be explicitly allowed.

Fixes: 2bb6d2837083 ("mm: introduce get_user_pages_longterm")
