Seeing as Mel said he would test it (and maybe Dave could as well), I
will post my patches again. There was a couple of page flags bugs pointed
out last time, which should be fixed.

Thanks,
Nick




Nicholas Piggin (2):
  mm: Use owner_priv bit for PageSwapCache, valid when PageSwapBacked
  mm: add PageWaiters bit to indicate waitqueue should be checked

So I already had Dave test the previous version, and the preliminary
data was good.

I guess we should just apply it. This is not improved by me dropping
it on the floor once more, and thinking that the problem is gone by
knowing that we can solve it.

But your respun patches don't have commit messages and sign-offs.. Hint hint

Acked-by: Hugh Dickins <hughd@google.com>

The thing that Peter remembers I commented on (which 0day caught too),
was to remove PG_swapcache from PAGE_FLAGS_CHECK_AT_FREE: you've done
that now, so this is good.  (Note in passing: wouldn't it be good to
add PG_waiters to PAGE_FLAGS_CHECK_AT_FREE in the 2/2?)

Though I did yesterday notice a few more problematic uses of
PG_swapcache, which you'll probably need to refine to exclude
other uses of PG_owner_priv_1; though no great hurry for those,
so not necessarily in this same patch.  Do your own grep, but

fs/proc/page.c derives its KPF_SWAPCACHE from PG_swapcache,
needs refining.

kernel/kexec_core.c says VMCOREINFO_NUMBER(PG_swapcache):
I haven't looked into what that's about, it will probably just
have to be commented as now including other uses of the same bit.

mm/memory-failure.c has an error_states[] table that involves
testing PG_swapcache as "sc", but looks as if it can be changed
to factor in "swapbacked" too.

Nick,
mind adding a changelog and a sign-off for these two patches?

I'd like to apply at least the first one asap, just to get as much
verification of the page flag bits as possible.

I've added the swapbacked check to mm/memory-failure.c, the others look
like they're just dealing with bit number, so not much to do about it
really. I also just made the migration case more explicit, seeing as the
others are.

Hopefully that doesn't negate your ack because I'm adding that too.

Thanks,
Nick
