mm/hmm: fix hmm_range_fault()'s handling of swapped out pages
hmm_range_fault() may return NULL pages because some of the pfns are equal
to HMM_PFN_NONE. This happens randomly under memory pressure. The reason
is during the swapped out page pte path, hmm_vma_handle_pte() doesn't
update the fault variable from cpu_flags, so it failed to call
hmm_vam_do_fault() to swap the page in.
The fix is to call hmm_pte_need_fault() to update fault variable.
