[PATCH 4.9 15/71] mm/vmstat.c: fix outdated vmstat_text

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Tue Oct 16 2018 - 13:23:02 EST

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


From: Jann Horn <jannh@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 28e2c4bb99aa40f9d5f07ac130cbc4da0ea93079 upstream.

7a9cdebdcc17 ("mm: get rid of vmacache_flush_all() entirely") removed the
VMACACHE_FULL_FLUSHES statistics, but didn't remove the corresponding
entry in vmstat_text. This causes an out-of-bounds access in

Luckily this only affects kernels with CONFIG_DEBUG_VM_VMACACHE=y, which
is probably very rare.
