Re: [Linux-ia64] Re: 2.5.59 & mmap_sem deadlock ?

I think copy_page_range() should check that the pfn is valid or not
before calling pfn_to_page(), or make pfn_to_page() to return
some pointer indicating "invalid_page" when argument is invalid pfn.

Anyway, I don't think it's good idea to consider that all addresses
outside of physical memory range belongs to last node.
