Subject: [RFC v2 03/10] mm: Avoid using set_page_count() in set_page_recounted()
Date: Wed, 17 Nov 2021 01:20:52 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20211117012059.141450-4-pasha.tatashin@soleen.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20211117012059.141450-1-pasha.tatashin@soleen.com>

set_page_refcounted() converts a non-refcounted page that has
(page->_refcount == 0) into a refcounted page by setting _refcount to
1.

The current apporach uses the following logic:

VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(page_ref_count(page), page);
set_page_count(page, 1);

However, if _refcount changes from 0 to 1 between the VM_BUG_ON_PAGE()
and set_page_count() we can break _refcount, which can cause other
problems such as memory corruptions.

Instead, use a safer method: increment _refcount first and verify
that at increment time it was indeed 1.

refcnt = page_ref_inc_return(page);
VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(refcnt != 1, page);

Use page_ref_inc_return() to avoid unconditionally overwriting
the _refcount value with set_page_count(), and check the return value.
