Hi Andrew,

Here's a set of 10 patches, mostly fixing some crashes and lockups
which can happen when khugepaged collapses tmpfs pages to huge:
by-products of ongoing work to extend upstream's huge tmpfs to
match what we need in Google (but no enhancements included here).

Against v4.20-rc2 == v4.20-rc4: sorry, I haven't looked yet to see
what clashes there might be with mmotm, because I believe that although
these are all (except 10/10) to long-standing bugs, they still deserve
to get into v4.20 and -stable.  See what you think.

Most of the testing has been on the whole series, and on a slightly
earlier kernel: the move to XArray means that almost none of these
patches will apply cleanly to v4.19 or earlier, but I do have the
equivalents lined up ready.

Huge tmpfs stress testing has occasionally hit shmem_undo_range()'s
VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(page_to_pgoff(page) != index, page).

Move the setting of mapping and index up before the page_ref_unfreeze()
in __split_huge_page_tail() to fix this: so that a page cache lookup
cannot get a reference while the tail's mapping and index are unstable.

In fact, might as well move them up before the smp_wmb(): I don't see
an actual need for that, but if I'm missing something, this way round
is safer than the other, and no less efficient.

You might argue that VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(page_to_pgoff(page) != index, page)
is misplaced, and should be left until after the trylock_page(); but
left as is has not crashed since, and gives more stringent assurance.

Huge tmpfs testing, on 32-bit kernel with lockdep enabled, showed that
__split_huge_page() was using i_size_read() while holding the irq-safe
lru_lock and page tree lock, but the 32-bit i_size_read() uses an
irq-unsafe seqlock which should not be nested inside them.

Instead, read the i_size earlier in split_huge_page_to_list(), and pass
the end offset down to __split_huge_page(): all while holding head page
lock, which is enough to prevent truncation of that extent before the
page tree lock has been taken.

Huge tmpfs testing showed that although collapse_shmem() recognizes a
concurrently truncated or hole-punched page correctly, its handling of
holes was liable to refill an emptied extent.  Add check to stop that.

Huge tmpfs testing on a shortish file mapped into a pmd-rounded extent hit
shmem_evict_inode()'s WARN_ON(inode->i_blocks) followed by clear_inode()'s
BUG_ON(inode->i_data.nrpages) when the file was later closed and unlinked.

khugepaged's collapse_shmem() was forgetting to update mapping->nrpages on
the rollback path, after it had added but then needs to undo some holes.

There is indeed an irritating asymmetry between shmem_charge(), whose
callers want it to increment nrpages after successfully accounting blocks,
and shmem_uncharge(), when __delete_from_page_cache() already decremented
nrpages itself: oh well, just add a comment on that to them both.

And shmem_recalc_inode() is supposed to be called when the accounting is
expected to be in balance (so it can deduce from imbalance that reclaim
discarded some pages): so change shmem_charge() to update nrpages earlier
(though it's rare for the difference to matter at all).

Huge tmpfs testing reminds us that there is no __GFP_ZERO in the gfp
flags khugepaged uses to allocate a huge page - in all common cases it
would just be a waste of effort - so collapse_shmem() must remember to
clear out any holes that it instantiates.

The obvious place to do so, where they are put into the page cache tree,
is not a good choice: because interrupts are disabled there.  Leave it
until further down, once success is assured, where the other pages are
copied (before setting PageUptodate).

Several cleanups in collapse_shmem(): most of which probably do not
really matter, beyond doing things in a more familiar and reassuring
order.  Simplify the failure gotos in the main loop, and on success
update stats while interrupts still disabled from the last iteration.

khugepaged's collapse_shmem() does almost all of its work, to assemble
the huge new_page from 512 scattered old pages, with the new_page's
refcount frozen to 0 (and refcounts of all old pages so far also frozen
to 0).  Including shmem_getpage() to read in any which were out on swap,
memory reclaim if necessary to allocate their intermediate pages, and
copying over all the data from old to new.

Imagine the frozen refcount as a spinlock held, but without any lock
debugging to highlight the abuse: it's not good, and under serious load
heads into lockups - speculative getters of the page are not expecting
to spin while khugepaged is rescheduled.

One can get a little further under load by hacking around elsewhere;
but fortunately, freezing the new_page turns out to have been entirely
unnecessary, with no hacks needed elsewhere.

The huge new_page lock is already held throughout, and guards all its
subpages as they are brought one by one into the page cache tree; and
anything reading the data in that page, without the lock, before it has
been marked PageUptodate, would already be in the wrong.  So simply
eliminate the freezing of the new_page.

Each of the old pages remains frozen with refcount 0 after it has been
replaced by a new_page subpage in the page cache tree, until they are all
unfrozen on success or failure: just as before.  They could be unfrozen
sooner, but cause no problem once no longer visible to find_get_entry(),
filemap_map_pages() and other speculative lookups.

collapse_shmem()'s VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(PageTransCompound) was unsafe: before
it holds page lock of the first page, racing truncation then extension
might conceivably have inserted a hugepage there already.  Fail with the
SCAN_PAGE_COMPOUND result, instead of crashing (CONFIG_DEBUG_VM=y) or
otherwise mishandling the unexpected hugepage - though later we might
code up a more constructive way of handling it, with SCAN_SUCCESS.

collapse_shmem()'s xas_nomem() is very unlikely to fail, but it is
rightly given a failure path, so move the whole xas_create_range() block
up before __SetPageLocked(new_page): so that it does not need to remember
to unlock_page(new_page).  Add the missing mem_cgroup_cancel_charge(),
and set (currently unused) result to SCAN_FAIL rather than SCAN_SUCCEED.

I'm not yet comfortable with XArray API. Matthew, what is your take on the patch?

I think we would need to revisit the accounting helpers to make them less
error prone. But it's out of scope for the patchset.

I'm puzzled by locking change here.

Isn't the change responsible for the bug you are fixing in 09/10?

IIRC, my intend for the locking scheme was to protect against
truncate-repopulate race.

What do I miss?

The rest of the patch *looks* okay, but I found it hard to follow.
Splitting it up would make it easier.

I'd use xas_find() directly here; I don't think it warrants the inlined
version of xas_next_entry().  But I'm happy either way.

> I'm puzzled by locking change here.

The locking change here is to not re-get xas_lock_irq (in shmem_getpage
case) just before we drop it anyway: you point out that it used to cover
		/*
		 * The page must be locked, so we can drop the i_pages lock
		 * without racing with truncate.
		 */
		VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(!PageLocked(page), page);
		VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(!PageUptodate(page), page);
		VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(PageTransCompound(page), page);
		if (page_mapping(page) != mapping) {
but now does not.

But the comment you wrote there originally (ah, git blame shows
that Matthew has made it say i_pages lock instead of tree_lock),
"The page must be locked, so we can drop...", was correct all along,
I'm just following what it says.

It would wrong if the trylock_page came after the xas_unlock_irq,
but it comes before (as before): holding i_pages lock across the
lookup makes sure we look up the right page (no RCU racing) and
trylock_page makes sure that it cannot be truncated or hole-punched
or migrated or whatever from that point on - so can drop i_pages lock.

Actually, I think we could VM_BUG_ON(page_mapping(page) != mapping),
couldn't we? Not that I propose to make such a change at this stage.

> 
> Isn't the change responsible for the bug you are fixing in 09/10?

In which I relaxed the VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(PageTransCompound(page), page)
that appears in the sequence above.

Well, what I was thinking of in 9/10 was a THP being inserted at some
stage between selecting this range for collapse and reaching the last
(usually first) xas_lock_irq(&xas) in the "This will be less messy..."
loop above: I don't see any locking against that possibility.  (And it
has to be that initial xas_lock_irq(&xas), because once the PageLocked
head of new_page is inserted in the i_pages tree, there is no more
chance for truncation and a competing THP to be inserted there.)

So 9/10 would be required anyway; but you're thinking that the page
we looked up under i_pages lock and got trylock_page on, could then
become Compound once i_pages lock is dropped?  I don't think so: pages
don't become Compound after they've left the page allocator, do they?
And if we ever manage to change that, I'm pretty sure it would be with
page locks held and page refcounts frozen.

The stage in between selecting the range for collapse, and getting
the initial i_pages lock?  Pages not becoming Compound underneath
you, with or without page lock, with or without i_pages lock?  Page
lock being sufficient protection against truncation and migration?

It needs some time, I admit: thanks a lot for persisting with it.
And thanks (to you and to Matthew) for the speedy Acks elsewhere.
