Subject: [PATCH] mm/swapfile: fix data races in try_to_unuse()
Date: Mon, 24 Feb 2020 16:15:03 -0500
Message-ID: <1582578903-29294-1-git-send-email-cai@lca.pw> (raw)

si->inuse_pages could be accessed concurrently as noticed by KCSAN,

 write to 0xffff98b00ebd04dc of 4 bytes by task 82262 on cpu 92:
  swap_range_free+0xbe/0x230
  swap_range_free at mm/swapfile.c:719
  swapcache_free_entries+0x1be/0x250
  free_swap_slot+0x1c8/0x220
  __swap_entry_free.constprop.19+0xa3/0xb0
  free_swap_and_cache+0x53/0xa0
  unmap_page_range+0x7e0/0x1ce0
  unmap_single_vma+0xcd/0x170
  unmap_vmas+0x18b/0x220
  exit_mmap+0xee/0x220
  mmput+0xe7/0x240
  do_exit+0x598/0xfd0
  do_group_exit+0x8b/0x180
  get_signal+0x293/0x13d0
  do_signal+0x37/0x5d0
  prepare_exit_to_usermode+0x1b7/0x2c0
  ret_from_intr+0x32/0x42

 read to 0xffff98b00ebd04dc of 4 bytes by task 82499 on cpu 46:
  try_to_unuse+0x86b/0xc80
  try_to_unuse at mm/swapfile.c:2185
  __x64_sys_swapoff+0x372/0xd40
  do_syscall_64+0x91/0xb05
  entry_SYSCALL_64_after_hwframe+0x49/0xbe

The plain reads in try_to_unuse() are outside si->lock critical section
which result in data races that could be dangerous to be used in a loop.
Fix them by adding READ_ONCE().
