Hi,

2.6.29-rc3 x86_64 guest on x86_64 RHEL5.3 host:

  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/484295

kernel BUG at mm/filemap.c:123! invalid opcode: 0000 [#1] SMP DEBUG_PAGEALLOC

This will fix it.  I hope.

Subject: x86: don't apply __supported_pte_mask to non-present ptes

__supported_pte_mask contains the set of flags we support on the
current hardware.  We also use bits in the pte for things like
logically present ptes with no permissions, and swap entries for
swapped out pages.  We should only apply __supported_pte_mask to
present ptes, because otherwise we may destroy other information being
stored in the ptes.
