mm: fix races between swapoff and flush dcache
Thanks to commit 4b3ef9daa4fc ("mm/swap: split swap cache into 64MB trunks"), after swapoff the address_space associated with the swap device will be freed. So page_mapping() users which may touch the address_space need some kind of mechanism to prevent the address_space from being freed during accessing. The dcache flushing functions (flush_dcache_page(), etc) in architecture specific code may access the address_space of swap device for anonymous pages in swap cache via page_mapping() function. But in some cases there are no mechanisms to prevent the swap device from being swapoff, for example, CPU1 CPU2 __get_user_pages() swapoff() flush_dcache_page() mapping = page_mapping() ... exit_swap_address_space() ... kvfree(spaces) mapping_mapped(mapping) The address space may be accessed after being freed. But from cachetlb.txt and Russell King, flush_dcache_page() only care about file cache pages, for anonymous pages, flush_anon_page() should be used. The implementation of flush_dcache_page() in all architectures follows this too. They will check whether page_mapping() is NULL and whether mapping_mapped() is true to determine whether to flush the dcache immediately. And they will use interval tree (mapping->i_mmap) to find all user space mappings. While mapping_mapped() and mapping->i_mmap isn't used by anonymous pages in swap cache at all. So, to fix the race between swapoff and flush dcache, __page_mapping() is add to return the address_space for file cache pages and NULL otherwise. All page_mapping() invoking in flush dcache functions are replaced with page_mapping_file().
