Subject: [PATCH v2 6/6] mm: use down_read_killable for locking mmap_sem in access_remote_vm
Date: Sun, 09 Jun 2019 13:09:02 +0300
Message-ID: <156007494202.3335.16782303099589302087.stgit@buzz> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <156007465229.3335.10259979070641486905.stgit@buzz>

This function is used by ptrace and proc files like /proc/pid/cmdline and
/proc/pid/environ.

Access_remote_vm never returns error codes, all errors are ignored and
only size of successfully read data is returned. So, if current task was
killed we'll simply return 0 (bytes read).

Mmap_sem could be locked for a long time or forever if something wrong.
Killable lock allows to cleanup stuck tasks and simplifies investigation.
