Subject: [PATCH 3/7] mm,madvise: call soft_offline_page() without MF_COUNT_INCREASED
Date: Thu, 19 Nov 2020 11:57:12 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20201119105716.5962-4-osalvador@suse.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20201119105716.5962-1-osalvador@suse.de>

From: Naoya Horiguchi <naoya.horiguchi@nec.com>

The call to get_user_pages_fast is only to get the pointer to a struct
page of a given address, pinning it is memory-poisoning handler's job,
so drop the refcount grabbed by get_user_pages_fast().

Note that the target page is still pinned after this put_page() because
the current process should have refcount from mapping.
