This patch series is split out series from [PATCH v7 00/11] Speedup mremap on ppc64
(https://lore.kernel.org/linux-mm/20210607055131.156184-1-aneesh.kumar@linux.ibm.com)
dropping ppc64 specific changes.

I will send the ppc64 specific changes separately once we agree on how to handle the
TLB flush changes.


Aneesh Kumar K.V (6):
  selftest/mremap_test: Update the test to handle pagesize other than 4K
  selftest/mremap_test: Avoid crash with static build
  mm/mremap: Convert huge PUD move to separate helper
  mm/mremap: Don't enable optimized PUD move if page table levels is 2
  mm/mremap: Use pmd/pud_poplulate to update page table entries
  mm/mremap: hold the rmap lock in write mode when moving page table
    entries.

Instead of hardcoding 4K page size fetch it using sysconf(). For the performance
measurements test still assume 2M and 1G are hugepage sizes.

With a large mmap map size, we can overlap with the text area and using
MAP_FIXED results in unmapping that area. Switch to MAP_FIXED_NOREPLACE
and handle the EEXIST error.

With TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE_PUD enabled the kernel can find huge PUD entries.
Add a helper to move huge PUD entries on mremap().

This will be used by a later patch to optimize mremap of PUD_SIZE aligned
level 4 PTE mapped address

This also make sure we support mremap on huge PUD entries even with
CONFIG_HAVE_MOVE_PUD disabled.

pmd/pud_populate is the right interface to be used to set the respective
page table entries. Some architectures like ppc64 do assume that set_pmd/pud_at
can only be used to set a hugepage PTE. Since we are not setting up a hugepage
PTE here, use the pmd/pud_populate interface.

* [PATCH 6/6] mm/mremap: hold the rmap lock in write mode when moving page table entries.

To avoid a race between rmap walk and mremap, mremap does take_rmap_locks().
The lock was taken to ensure that rmap walk don't miss a page table entry due to
PTE moves via move_pagetables(). The kernel does further optimization of
this lock such that if we are going to find the newly added vma after the
old vma, the rmap lock is not taken. This is because rmap walk would find the
vmas in the same order and if we don't find the page table attached to
older vma we would find it with the new vma which we would iterate later.

As explained in commit eb66ae030829 ("mremap: properly flush TLB before releasing the page")
mremap is special in that it doesn't take ownership of the page. The
optimized version for PUD/PMD aligned mremap also doesn't hold the ptl lock.
This can result in stale TLB entries as show below.

This patch updates the rmap locking requirement in mremap to handle the race condition
explained below with optimized mremap::

Optmized PMD move

    CPU 1                           CPU 2                                   CPU 3

    mremap(old_addr, new_addr)      page_shrinker/try_to_unmap_one

    mmap_write_lock_killable()

                                    addr = old_addr
                                    lock(pte_ptl)
    lock(pmd_ptl)
    pmd = *old_pmd
    pmd_clear(old_pmd)
    flush_tlb_range(old_addr)

    *new_pmd = pmd
                                                                            *new_addr = 10; and fills
                                                                            TLB with new addr
                                                                            and old pfn

    unlock(pmd_ptl)
                                    ptep_clear_flush()
                                    old pfn is free.
                                                                            Stale TLB entry

Optimized PUD move also suffers from a similar race.
Both the above race condition can be fixed if we force mremap path to take rmap lock.

That "(pmd_t *)pud_page_vaddr(pud)" looks a bit odd and doesn't match
the pattern.

Should we perhaps have a wrapper for it? Maybe called "pud_pgtable()",
the same way we have pmd_pgtable()?

And that wrapper would be good to have a comment or two about what it
actually is. The same way that pmd_pgtable() should but doesn't ;(

Should that say
#ifdef CONFIG_HAVE_ARCH_TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE_PUD
?

(I'm a PUD-THP-sceptic, but if it's just for DAX then probably okay.)

IIUC the reason why we do have pmd_pgtable() is that pgtable_t type
is arch dependent. On some architecture it is pte_t * and on the other
struct page *. The reason being highmem and level 4 page table can
be located in highmem. 

The above is not true with the level 3 table and hence we didn't add an
extra type to point to level 3 table.

We could add pud_pgtable(), but then it will essentially be a typecast
as I did above?

Even if we want to do that, that should be done as a separate patch than
this series?

That is ahistorical.  See 2f569afd9ced9ebec9a6eb3dbf6f83429be0a7b4 --
we have pgtable_t for the benefit of s390's crazy sub-page page table
sizes.

Also, please stop numbering page tables upside down.  PTEs are first
level, not fourth.

That is also true with ppc64. We do sub-page page table size. I was 
trying to explain why it can't be pte_t * everywhere and why we have
it as struct page *.

POWER ISA do name it the other way. I also see some pages explaining 
levels the other way

https://www.bottomupcs.com/virtual_memory_linux.xhtml

whereas 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_5-level_paging#/media/File:Page_Tables_(5_levels).svg

I am pretty sure I had commits that explained page table level as I did 
in this thread. I will switch to your suggestion in further discussions. 
May be the best solution is to attribute it with more details like level 
1 (pte_t *)?

Honestly, the same confusion is real - in a different way - about
pud_page_vaddr().

I really hate that function.

Just grep for the uses, and the definitions, to see what I mean. It's crazy.

I'm perfectly happy not having a "pud_pagetable()" function, but that
cast on pud_page_vaddr() is indicative of real problems.

One solution might be to just say "pud_page_vaddr()" must return a "pmd_t *".

I think it's what all the users actually want anyway.

ppc32 as well. On the 8xx, with 16k size pages, the HW still use 4k page tables, so we do use sub-pages.

In order too keep the code simple, we have converted all powerpc to sub-pages for that, allthough 
some powerpc platforms have only one sub-page per page.
