[PATCH Fix 0/2] Fix out-of-bounds maple tree isue

The out of bounds maple tree issue was actually a maple tree error being
treated as a node.  This was caused by the requested allocation of more
nodes than was available while forking, but there was no memory
available.  This series adds one node to the calculated
mas_expected_entries() to ensure there is enough nodes, adds a flag to
WARN_ON() if a request for nodes is hit with zero nodes available during
a preallocated operation, and also adds the necessary check in the fork
operation to fail.

  maple_tree: Fix mas_expected_entries() off by one
  kernel/fork: Detect mas_store() failure in dup_mmap()
