      sched/wait: Fix the signal handling fix · dfd01f02
      Peter Zijlstra authored
      Jan Stancek reported that I wrecked things for him by fixing things for
      Vladimir :/
      His report was due to an UNINTERRUPTIBLE wait getting -EINTR, which
      should not be possible, however my previous patch made this possible by
      unconditionally checking signal_pending().
      We cannot use current->state as was done previously, because the
      instruction after the store to that variable it can be changed.  We must
      instead pass the initial state along and use that.
      Fixes: 68985633

      MIPS: fix DMA contiguous allocation · 9530d0fe
      Qais Yousef authored
      Recent changes to how GFP_ATOMIC is defined seems to have broken the
      condition to use mips_alloc_from_contiguous() in
      I couldn't bottom out the exact change but I think it's this commit
       ("mm, page_alloc: distinguish between being unable to
      sleep, unwilling to sleep and avoiding waking kswapd").
      GFP_ATOMIC has multiple bits set and the check for !(gfp & GFP_ATOMIC)
      isn't enough.
      The reason behind this condition is to check whether we can potentially
      do a sleeping memory allocation.  Use gfpflags_allow_blocking() instead
      which should be more robust.

      mm/oom_kill.c: avoid attempting to kill init sharing same memory · a2b829d9
      Chen Jie authored
      It's possible that an oom killed victim shares an ->mm with the init
      process and thus oom_kill_process() would end up trying to kill init as
      This has been shown in practice:
      	Out of memory: Kill process 9134 (init) score 3 or sacrifice child
      	Killed process 9134 (init) total-vm:1868kB, anon-rss:84kB, file-rss:572kB
      	Kill process 1 (init) sharing same memory
      	Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x00000009
      And this will result in a kernel panic.
      If a process is forked by init and selected for oom kill while still
      sharing init_mm, then it's likely this system is in a recoverable state.
      However, it's better not to try to kill init and allow the machine to
      panic due to unkillable processes.

      drivers/base/memory.c: prohibit offlining of memory blocks with missing sections · 26bbe7ef
      Seth Jennings authored
      Commit bdee237c ("x86: mm: Use 2GB memory block size on large-memory
      x86-64 systems") and 982792c7 ("x86, mm: probe memory block size for
      generic x86 64bit") introduced large block sizes for x86.  This made it
      possible to have multiple sections per memory block where previously,
      there was a only every one section per block.
      Since blocks consist of contiguous ranges of section, there can be holes
      in the blocks where sections are not present.  If one attempts to
      offline such a block, a crash occurs since the code is not designed to
      deal with this.
      This patch is a quick fix to gaurd against the crash by not allowing
      blocks with non-present sections to be offlined.

      tmpfs: fix shmem_evict_inode() warnings on i_blocks · 267a4c76
      Hugh Dickins authored
      Dmitry Vyukov provides a little program, autogenerated by syzkaller,
      which races a fault on a mapping of a sparse memfd object, against
      truncation of that object below the fault address: run repeatedly for a
      few minutes, it reliably generates shmem_evict_inode()'s
      (But there's nothing specific to memfd here, nor to the fstat which it
      happened to use to generate the fault: though that looked suspicious,
      since a shmem_recalc_inode() had been added there recently.  The same
      problem can be reproduced with open+unlink in place of memfd_create, and
      with fstatfs in place of fstat.)
      v3.7 commit 0f3c42f5
       ("tmpfs: change final i_blocks BUG to WARNING")
      explains one cause of such a warning (a race with shmem_writepage to
      swap), and possible solutions; but we never took it further, and this
      syzkaller incident turns out to have a different cause.
      shmem_getpage_gfp()'s error recovery, when a freshly allocated page is
      then found to be beyond eof, looks plausible - decrementing the alloced
      count that was just before incremented - but in fact can go wrong, if a
      racing thread (the truncator, for example) gets its shmem_recalc_inode()
      in just after our delete_from_page_cache().  delete_from_page_cache()
      decrements nrpages, that shmem_recalc_inode() will balance the books by
      decrementing alloced itself, then our decrement of alloced take it one
      too low: leading to the WARNING when the object is finally evicted.
      Once the new page has been exposed in the page cache,
      shmem_getpage_gfp() must leave it to shmem_recalc_inode() itself to get
      the accounting right in all cases (and not fall through from "trunc:" to
      "decused:").  Adjust that error recovery block; and the reinitialization
      of info and sbinfo can be removed too.
      While we're here, fix shmem_writepage() to avoid the original issue: it
      will be safe against a racing shmem_recalc_inode(), if it merely
      increments swapped before the shmem_delete_from_page_cache() which
      decrements nrpages (but it must then do its own shmem_recalc_inode()
      before that, while still in balance, instead of after).  (Aside: why do
      we shmem_recalc_inode() here in the swap path? Because its raison d'etre
      is to cope with clean sparse shmem pages being reclaimed behind our
      back: so here when swapping is a good place to look for that case.) But
      I've not now managed to reproduce this bug, even without the patch.
      I don't see why I didn't do that earlier: perhaps inhibited by the
      preference to eliminate shmem_recalc_inode() altogether.  Driven by this
      incident, I do now have a patch to do so at last; but still want to sit
      on it for a bit, there's a couple of questions yet to be resolved.

      Dmitry identified a potential memory leak in the routine region_chg,
      where a region descriptor is not free'ed on an error path.
      However, the root cause for the above memory leak resides in region_del.
      In this specific case, a "placeholder" entry is created in region_chg.
      The associated page allocation fails, and the placeholder entry is left
      in the reserve map.  This is "by design" as the entry should be deleted
      when the map is released.  The bug is in the region_del routine which is
      used to delete entries within a specific range (and when the map is
      released).  region_del did not handle the case where a placeholder entry
      exactly matched the start of the range range to be deleted.  In this
      case, the entry would not be deleted and leaked.  The fix is to take
      these special placeholder entries into account in region_del.
      The region_chg error path leak is also fixed.
      Fixes: feba16e2
       ("mm/hugetlb: add region_del() to delete a specific range of entries")
