Subject: [PATCH 09/10] mm/khugepaged: collapse_shmem() do not crash on Compound
Date: Mon, 26 Nov 2018 15:31:15 -0800 (PST)
Message-ID: <alpine.LSU.2.11.1811261529310.2275@eggly.anvils> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <alpine.LSU.2.11.1811261444420.2275@eggly.anvils>

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.

Fixes: f3f0e1d2150b2 ("khugepaged: add support of collapse for tmpfs/shmem pages")
