Hi all,
This series contains cleanups to remove unneeded return value, misleading
comment and so on. Also this puts the redirtied MADV_FREE pages back to
anonymous LRU list. More details can be found in the respective changelogs.
Thanks!

If the MADV_FREE pages are redirtied before they could be reclaimed, put
the pages back to anonymous LRU list by setting SwapBacked flag and the
pages will be reclaimed in normal swapout way. Otherwise MADV_FREE pages
won't be reclaimed as expected.

The priority field of sc is used to control how many pages we should scan
at once while we always traverse the list to shrink the pages in these
functions. So these settings are unneeded and misleading.

The return value of kswapd_run() is unused now. Clean it up.

We could add 'else' to remove the somewhat odd check_pending label to
make code core succinct.

We couldn't know whether the page is being freed elsewhere until we failed
to increase the page count.

This is not a bug -- the dirty check isn't needed but it was copied
from __remove_mapping().

The page has only one reference left, which is from the isolation.
After the caller puts the page back on lru and drops the reference,
the page will be freed anyway. It doesn't matter which lru it goes.

Yes, this is not a bug and harmless. When we reach here, page should not be
dirtied because PageDirty is handled above and there is no way to redirty it
again as pagetable references are all gone and it's not in the swap cache.

But it looks buggy as it didn't perform the expected ops from code view.
Should I drop the Fixes tag and send a v2 version?

Could you describe problem which you are trying to address? What does it
mean that pages won't be reclaimed as expected?

Also why is SetPageSwapBacked in shrink_page_list insufficient?

I dunno. I agree that priority is not really used as these operate on
page lists but I am not sure this is worth touching.

Yes, this makes the code easier to follow. The two modes of throttling
depending on the fs reclaim mode is more obvious now.

This is moving a hard to understand comment from one place to another.
If anything this would benefit from what that elsewhere might be
typically or simply drop the comment altogether.

In fact, this is not a bug and harmless. But it looks buggy as it didn't perform
the expected ops from code view. Lazyfree (MADV_FREE) pages are clean anonymous
pages. They have SwapBacked flag cleared to distinguish normal anonymous pages.
When the MADV_FREE pages are redirtied before they could be reclaimed, the pages
should be put back to anonymous LRU list by setting SwapBacked flag, thus the
pages will be reclaimed in normal swapout way.

Many thanks for review and reply.

When I investigated the vmscan code, I thought the order here would control the
proportion of the pages in the list to shrink. So I prefer to remove these.

Thanks a lot for review and reply!

If get_page_unless_zero failed, the page could have been freed elsewhere. I think
this looks straightforward but doesn't help a lot. Are you preferring to just
remove this comment ?

Thank you.

I don't understand the logic here -- it looks pretty obvious to me
that, if we want to change anything, we should delete the dirty check,
not add another line that would enforce the belief that the dirty
check is needed.

Fixes tag is then misleading and the changelog should be more clear
about this as well.

yes.

Agreed. But the question is why this needs an explicit handling here
when we already do handle this case when trying to unmap the page.
Please make sure to document the behavior you are observing, why it is
not desirable.

Yes the comment in its current form is not really helpful much. Does it
deserve a single liner to drop it? Likely not on its own without more
changes in that area.

Sure, I will drop this single patch. And I would send a new patch when I collect enough
misleading/obsolete comments to fix.

Thanks.

This makes me think more. It seems even the page_ref_freeze call is guaranteed to
success as no one can grab the page refcnt after the page is successfully unmapped.

Does the change below makes sense for you?

The dirty check could be removed even with the page_ref_freeze check because no one can grab
the page refcnt after the page is successfully unmapped.

NO!  This is wrong.  Every page can have its refcount speculatively raised
(and then lowered).  The two prime candidates for this are lockless GUP
and page cache lookups, but there can be others too.

Many thanks for pointing this out. My overlook! Sorry!
So, it seems lockless GUP can redirty the MADV_FREE page. But is it ok to just release
a redirtied MADV_FREE pages? Because we hold the last reference here and the page will
be freed anyway...

I don't see how lockless GUP can redirty the page.  It can grab the
refcount, thus making the refcount here two.  Then the call to freeze
here fails and the page stays on the list.  But the lockless GUP checks
the page is still in the page table (and discovers it isn't, so releases
the reference count).  Am I missing a path that lets lockless GUP dirty
the page?

If a device driver pins some pages using gup, and the device then uses dma
to write to those pages, then you could get there. That story is part of the
reasoning that led to creating pin_user_pages(), which btw does not yet
fully solve that case.

Basically, though, unless a non-CPU device has access to the page, it's
hard to see how gup itself can lead to a page getting dirtied.

Many thanks for your explanation.
So the similar scenario that is clarified in the __remove_mapping() is possible:

get_user_pages(&page);
[user mapping goes away]
write_to(page);
				!PageDirty(page)    [good]
SetPageDirty(page);
put_page(page);
				!page_count(page)   [good, discard it]

[oops, our write_to data is lost]

The page can be redirtied after the page is unmapped. And there is no way to restore the page
table as clean MADV_FREE page is simply cleared from page table via the try_to_unmap path.
Is it ok to just release the redirtied MADV_FREE pages here as we hold the last reference
and the page will be freed anyway... ?

I probably should have added that the scenario I was describing is broken even
before any patches that you might apply here. I was just trying to ensure that
the complete list of scenarios was known.
