Subject: [PATCH] mm: thp: fix MADV_REMOVE deadlock on shmem THP
Date: Sat, 16 Jan 2021 14:16:24 -0800 (PST)
Message-ID: <alpine.LSU.2.11.2101161409470.2022@eggly.anvils> (raw)

Sergey reported deadlock between kswapd correctly doing its usual
lock_page(page) followed by down_read(page->mapping->i_mmap_rwsem),
and madvise(MADV_REMOVE) on an madvise(MADV_HUGEPAGE) area doing
down_write(page->mapping->i_mmap_rwsem) followed by lock_page(page).

This happened when shmem_fallocate(punch hole)'s unmap_mapping_range()
reaches zap_pmd_range()'s call to __split_huge_pmd().  The same deadlock
could occur when partially truncating a mapped huge tmpfs file, or using
fallocate(FALLOC_FL_PUNCH_HOLE) on it.

__split_huge_pmd()'s page lock was added in 5.8, to make sure that any
concurrent use of reuse_swap_page() (holding page lock) could not catch
the anon THP's mapcounts and swapcounts while they were being split.

Fortunately, reuse_swap_page() is never applied to a shmem or file THP
(not even by khugepaged, which checks PageSwapCache before calling),
and anonymous THPs are never created in shmem or file areas: so that
__split_huge_pmd()'s page lock can only be necessary for anonymous THPs,
on which there is no risk of deadlock with i_mmap_rwsem.

The status of reuse_swap_page(), and its use on THPs, is currently under
discussion, and may need to be changed: but this patch is a simple fix
to the reported deadlock, which can go in now, and be easily backported
to whichever stable and longterm releases took in 5.8's c444eb564fb1.
