2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Trond Myklebust <Trond.Myklebust@netapp.com>

commit 9f557cd8073104b39528794d44e129331ded649f upstream.

The VM/VFS does not allow mapping->a_ops->invalidatepage() to fail.
Unfortunately, nfs_wb_page_cancel() may fail if a fatal signal occurs.
Since the NFS code assumes that the page stays mapped for as long as the
writeback is active, we can end up Oopsing (among other things).

The only safe fix here is to convert nfs_wait_on_request(), so as to make
it uninterruptible (as is already the case with wait_on_page_writeback()).
