Good point.  Originally, it paralleled insert_pfn() in mm/memory.c, but it
became apparent that the return code of 0 or -Exxx was useless, and in converting insert_pfn_pmd over to VM_FAULT_ codes, all possible return codes were
going to be VM_FAULT_NOPAGE.  It didn't occur to me to take it one step further and make the function return void.

It doesn't make much difference either way:



I suppose it's slightly cleaner.  I'll integrate this for the next release.
