[PATCH 3.4 028/172] mm/hugetlb: add migration/hwpoisoned entry check in hugetlb_change_protection

From: lizf
Date: Tue Jun 16 2015 - 05:34:11 EST

From: Naoya Horiguchi <n-horiguchi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

3.4.108-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


commit a8bda28d87c38c6aa93de28ba5d30cc18e865a11 upstream.

There is a race condition between hugepage migration and
change_protection(), where hugetlb_change_protection() doesn't care about
migration entries and wrongly overwrites them. That causes unexpected
results like kernel crash. HWPoison entries also can cause the same

This patch adds is_hugetlb_entry_(migration|hwpoisoned) check in this
function to do proper actions.

Fixes: 290408d4a2 ("hugetlb: hugepage migration core")
