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


commit d96b339f453997f2f08c52da3f41423be48c978f upstream.

I saw the following BUG_ON triggered in a testcase where a process calls
madvise(MADV_SOFT_OFFLINE) on thps, along with a background process that
calls migratepages command repeatedly (doing ping-pong among different
NUMA nodes) for the first process:

Soft offlining page 0x60000 at 0x700000600000
__get_any_page: 0x60000 free buddy page
page:ffffea0001800000 count:0 mapcount:-127 mapping: (null) index:0x1
flags: 0x1fffc0000000000()
page dumped because: VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(atomic_read(&page->_count) == 0)

The root cause resides in get_any_page() which retries to get a refcount
of the page to be soft-offlined. This function calls
put_hwpoison_page(), expecting that the target page is putback to LRU
list. But it can be also freed to buddy. So the second check need to
care about such case.
