mm, hugetlb: remove unnecessary lower bound on sysctl handlers"?
Commit ed4d4902ebdd ("mm, hugetlb: remove hugetlb_zero and hugetlb_infinity") replaced 'unsigned long hugetlb_zero' with 'int zero' leading to out-of-bounds access in proc_doulongvec_minmax(). Use '.extra1 = NULL' instead of '.extra1 = &zero'. Passing NULL is equivalent to passing minimal value, which is 0 for unsigned types.
