commit dbfee5aee7e54f83d96ceb8e3e80717fac62ad63 upstream.

page structs are not guaranteed to be contiguous for gigantic pages.  The
routine update_and_free_page can encounter a gigantic page, yet it assumes
page structs are contiguous when setting page flags in subpages.

If update_and_free_page encounters non-contiguous page structs, we can see
“BUG: Bad page state in process …” errors.

Non-contiguous page structs are generally not an issue.  However, they can
exist with a specific kernel configuration and hotplug operations.  For
example: Configure the kernel with CONFIG_SPARSEMEM and
!CONFIG_SPARSEMEM_VMEMMAP.  Then, hotplug add memory for the area where
the gigantic page will be allocated.  Zi Yan outlined steps to reproduce
here [1].
