[PATCH 3.13.y-ckt 20/48] powerpc/mm: Recompute hash value after a failed update

From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Tue Oct 27 2015 - 17:43:00 EST

3.13.11-ckt29 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: "Aneesh Kumar K.V" <aneesh.kumar@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 36b35d5d807b7e57aff7d08e63de8b17731ee211 upstream.

If we had secondary hash flag set, we ended up modifying hash value in
the updatepp code path. Hence with a failed updatepp we will be using
a wrong hash value for the following hash insert. Fix this by
recomputing hash before insert.

Without this patch we can end up with using wrong slot number in linux
pte. That can result in us missing an hash pte update or invalidate
which can cause memory corruption or even machine check.
