Subject: [PATCH v2] mm/hwpoison: Retry with shake_page() for unhandlable pages
Date: Thu, 19 Aug 2021 09:19:58 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210819001958.2365157-1-naoya.horiguchi@linux.dev> (raw)

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

HWPoisonHandlable() sometimes returns false for typical user pages
due to races with average memory events like transfers over LRU lists.
This causes failures in hwpoison handling.

There's retry code for such a case but does not work because the retry
loop reaches the retry limit too quickly before the page settles down to
handlable state. Let get_any_page() call shake_page() to fix it.

Fixes: 25182f05ffed ("mm,hwpoison: fix race with hugetlb page allocation")
