Subject: [PATCH] mm: Fix modifying of page protection by insert_pfn()
Date: Mon, 11 Mar 2019 09:45:37 +0100
Message-ID: <20190311084537.16029-1-jack@suse.cz> (raw)

Aneesh has reported that PPC triggers the following warning when
excercising DAX code:

[c00000000007610c] set_pte_at+0x3c/0x190
LR [c000000000378628] insert_pfn+0x208/0x280
Call Trace:
[c0000002125df980] [8000000000000104] 0x8000000000000104 (unreliable)

[c0000002125dfd40] [c000000000074bb0] __do_page_fault+0x300/0xd60
[c0000002125dfe20] [c00000000000acf4] handle_page_fault+0x18

Now that is WARN_ON in set_pte_at which is

        VM_WARN_ON(pte_hw_valid(*ptep) && !pte_protnone(*ptep));

The problem is that on some architectures set_pte_at() cannot cope with
a situation where there is already some (different) valid entry present.

Use ptep_set_access_flags() instead to modify the pfn which is built to
deal with modifying existing PTE.
