mm: thp: give transparent hugepage code a separate copy_page
Right now, the migration code in migrate_page_copy() uses copy_huge_page() for hugetlbfs and thp pages: if (PageHuge(page) || PageTransHuge(page)) copy_huge_page(newpage, page); So, yay for code reuse. But: void copy_huge_page(struct page *dst, struct page *src) { struct hstate *h = page_hstate(src); and a non-hugetlbfs page has no page_hstate(). This works 99% of the time because page_hstate() determines the hstate from the page order alone. Since the page order of a THP page matches the default hugetlbfs page order, it works. But, if you change the default huge page size on the boot command-line (say default_hugepagesz=1G), then we might not even *have* a 2MB hstate so page_hstate() returns null and copy_huge_page() oopses pretty fast since copy_huge_page() dereferences the hstate: void copy_huge_page(struct page *dst, struct page *src) { struct hstate *h = page_hstate(src); if (unlikely(pages_per_huge_page(h) > MAX_ORDER_NR_PAGES)) { ... Mel noticed that the migration code is really the only user of these functions. This moves all the copy code over to migrate.c and makes copy_huge_page() work for THP by checking for it explicitly. I believe the bug was introduced in commit b32967ff101a ("mm: numa: Add THP migration for the NUMA working set scanning fault case") [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix coding-style and comment text, per Naoya Horiguchi] Signed-off-by: Dave Hansen <dave.hansen@linux.intel.com> Acked-by: Mel Gorman <mgorman@suse.de> Reviewed-by: Naoya Horiguchi <n-horiguchi@ah.jp.nec.com> Cc: Hillf Danton <dhillf@gmail.com> Cc: Andrea Arcangeli <aarcange@redhat.com> Tested-by: Dave Jiang <dave.jiang@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
