Subject: [PATCH 0/7] HWPoison: Refactor get page interface
Date: Thu, 19 Nov 2020 11:57:09 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20201119105716.5962-1-osalvador@suse.de> (raw)

Hi,

following up on previous fix-ups an refactors, this patchset simplifies
the get page interface and removes the MF_COUNT_INCREASED trick we have
for soft offline.

Please, note that this patchset is on top of [1] and [2].

This patchset does three things:

 1) Drops MF_COUNT_INCREASED trick
 2) Refactors get page interface
 3) Places a common entry for grabbin a page from both hard offline
    and soft offline guarded by zone_pcp_{disable/enable}, so we do not
    have to drain pcplists by ourself and retry again.

Note that the MF_COUNT_INCREASED trick was left because if get_hwpoison_page
races with put_page (e.g:)

CPU0                         CPU1
put_page (refcount decremented to 0)
 __put_single_page
  free_unref_page
   free_unref_page_prepare
    free_pcp_prepare
     free_pages_prepare                           soft_offline_page
     :page->flags &= ~PAGE_FLAGS_CHECK_AT_PREP     get_any_page
                            			    get_hwpoison_page
   free_unref_page_commit
    free_one_page
     __free_one_page (place it in buddy)

get_hwpoison_page sees that page has a refcount of 0, but since it was not placed
in buddy yet we cannot really handle it.
We now have a sort of maximum passes in get_any_page, so in case we race
with either an allocation or a put_page, we retry again.

After an off-list discussion with Naoya, he agreed to proceed.
