DescriptionIn the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: mm/secretmem: fix NULL page->mapping dereference in page_is_secretmem() Check for a NULL page->mapping before dereferencing the mapping in page_is_secretmem(), as the page's mapping can be nullified while gup() is running, e.g. by reclaim or truncation.
