Base
====

This series is based on (and therefore should apply cleanly to) the tag
"v5.12-rc7-mmots-2021-04-11-20-49", additionally with Peter's selftest cleanup
series applied first:

Changelog
=========

v2->v3:
- Picked up {Reviewed,Acked}-by's.
- Reorder commits: introduce CONTINUE before MINOR registration. [Hugh, Peter]
- Don't try to {unlock,put}_page an xarray value in shmem_getpage_gfp. [Hugh]
- Move enum mcopy_atomic_mode forward declare out of CONFIG_HUGETLB_PAGE. [Hugh]
- Keep mistakenly removed UFFD_USER_MODE_ONLY in selftest. [Peter]
- Cleanup context management in self test (make clear implicit, remove unneeded
  return values now that we have err()). [Peter]
- Correct dst_pte argument to dst_pmd in shmem_mcopy_atomic_pte macro. [Hugh]
- Mention the new shmem support feature in documentation. [Hugh]

v1->v2:
- Pick up Reviewed-by's.
- Don't swapin page when a minor fault occurs. Notice that it needs to be
  swapped in, and just immediately fire the minor fault. Let a future CONTINUE
  deal with swapping in the page. [Peter]
- Clarify comment about i_size checks in mm/userfaultfd.c. [Peter]
- Only forward declare once (out of #ifdef) in hugetlb.h. [Peter]

Changes since [2]:
- Squash the fixes ([2]) in with the original series ([1]). This makes reviewing
  easier, as we no longer have to sift through deltas undoing what we had done
  before. [Hugh, Peter]
- Modify shmem_mcopy_atomic_pte() to use the new mcopy_atomic_install_ptes()
  helper, reducing code duplication. [Hugh]
- Properly trigger handle_userfault() in the shmem_swapin_page() case. [Hugh]
- Use shmem_getpage() instead of find_lock_page() to lookup the existing page in
  for continue. This properly deals with swapped-out pages. [Hugh]
- Unconditionally pte_mkdirty() for anon memory (as before). [Peter]
- Don't include userfaultfd_k.h in either hugetlb.h or shmem_fs.h. [Hugh]
- Add comment for UFFD_FEATURE_MINOR_SHMEM (to match _HUGETLBFS). [Hugh]
- Fix some small cleanup issues (parens, reworded conditionals, reduced plumbing
  of some parameters, simplify labels/gotos, ...). [Hugh, Peter]

Overview
========

See the series which added minor faults for hugetlbfs [3] for a detailed
overview of minor fault handling in general. This series adds the same support
for shmem-backed areas.

This series is structured as follows:

- Commits 1 and 2 are cleanups.
- Commits 3 and 4 implement the new feature (minor fault handling for shmem).
- Commits 5, 6, 7, 8 update the userfaultfd selftest to exercise the feature.
- Commit 9 is one final cleanup, modifying an existing code path to re-use a new
  helper we've introduced. We rely on the selftest to show that this change
  doesn't break anything.

Use Case
========

In some cases it is useful to have VM memory backed by tmpfs instead of
hugetlbfs. So, this feature will be used to support the same VM live migration
use case described in my original series.

Additionally, Android folks (Lokesh Gidra <lokeshgidra@google.com>) hope to
optimize the Android Runtime garbage collector using this feature:

"The plan is to use userfaultfd for concurrently compacting the heap. With
this feature, the heap can be shared-mapped at another location where the
GC-thread(s) could continue the compaction operation without the need to
invoke userfault ioctl(UFFDIO_COPY) each time. OTOH, if and when Java threads
get faults on the heap, UFFDIO_CONTINUE can be used to resume execution.
Furthermore, this feature enables updating references in the 'non-moving'
portion of the heap efficiently. Without this feature, uneccessary page
copying (ioctl(UFFDIO_COPY)) would be required."
