parentdax: fix race between colliding PMD & PTE entries (diff)
mm/migrate: fix refcount handling when !hugepage_migration_supported()
On failing to migrate a page, soft_offline_huge_page() performs the necessary update to the hugepage ref-count. But when !hugepage_migration_supported() , unmap_and_move_hugepage() also decrements the page ref-count for the hugepage. The combined behaviour leaves the ref-count in an inconsistent state. This leads to soft lockups when running the overcommitted hugepage test from mce-tests suite. Soft offlining pfn 0x83ed600 at process virtual address 0x400000000000 soft offline: 0x83ed600: migration failed 1, type 1fffc00000008008 (uptodate|head) INFO: rcu_preempt detected stalls on CPUs/tasks: Tasks blocked on level-0 rcu_node (CPUs 0-7): P2715 (detected by 7, t=5254 jiffies, g=963, c=962, q=321) thugetlb_overco R running task 0 2715 2685 0x00000008 Call trace: dump_backtrace+0x0/0x268 show_stack+0x24/0x30 sched_show_task+0x134/0x180 rcu_print_detail_task_stall_rnp+0x54/0x7c rcu_check_callbacks+0xa74/0xb08 update_process_times+0x34/0x60 tick_sched_handle.isra.7+0x38/0x70 tick_sched_timer+0x4c/0x98 __hrtimer_run_queues+0xc0/0x300 hrtimer_interrupt+0xac/0x228 arch_timer_handler_phys+0x3c/0x50 handle_percpu_devid_irq+0x8c/0x290 generic_handle_irq+0x34/0x50 __handle_domain_irq+0x68/0xc0 gic_handle_irq+0x5c/0xb0 Address this by changing the putback_active_hugepage() in soft_offline_huge_page() to putback_movable_pages(). This only triggers on systems that enable memory failure handling (ARCH_SUPPORTS_MEMORY_FAILURE) but not hugepage migration (!ARCH_ENABLE_HUGEPAGE_MIGRATION). I imagine this wasn't triggered as there aren't many systems running this configuration.
