[PATCH] mm: filemap: fix mapping->nrpages double accounting in fuse
From: Johannes Weiner
Date: Tue Oct 04 2016 - 10:58:06 EST
22f2ac51b6d6 ("mm: workingset: fix crash in shadow node shrinker
caused by replace_page_cache_page()") switched replace_page_cache()
from raw radix tree operations to page_cache_tree_insert() but didn't
take into account that the latter function, unlike the raw radix tree
op, handles mapping->nrpages. As a result, that counter is bumped for
each page replacement rather than balanced out even.
The mapping->nrpages counter is used to skip needless radix tree walks
when invalidating, truncating, syncing inodes without pages, as well
as statistics for userspace. Since the error is positive, we'll do
more page cache tree walks than necessary; we won't miss a necessary
one. And we'll report more buffer pages to userspace than there
are. The error is limited to fuse inodes.
