This is a stable follow up fix for an incorrect backport. The issue is
not present in the upstream kernel.

Miroslav has noticed the following splat when testing my 3.2 forward
port of 8310d48b125d ("mm/huge_memory.c: respect FOLL_FORCE/FOLL_COW for
thp") to 3.12:

BUG: Bad page state in process a.out  pfn:26400
page:ffffea000085e000 count:0 mapcount:1 mapping:          (null) index:0x7f049d600
page flags: 0x1fffff80108018(uptodate|dirty|head|swapbacked)

The problem is that the original 3.2 backport didn't return NULL page on
the FOLL_COW page and so the page got reused.
