[linux-next PATCH] mlx5: wrong page mask if CONFIG_ARCH_DMA_ADDR_T_64BIT enabled for 32Bit architectures

From: Honggang Li
Date: Sun Apr 12 2015 - 07:06:25 EST

If CONFIG_ARCH_DMA_ADDR_T_64BIT enabled for x86 systems and physical
memory is more than 4GB, dma_map_page may return a valid memory
address which greater than 0xffffffff. As a result, the mlx5 device page
allocator RB tree will be initialized with valid addresses greater than

However, (addr & PAGE_MASK) set the high four bytes to zeros. So, it's
impossible for the function, free_4k, to release the pages whose
addresses greater than 4GB. Memory leaks. And mlx5_ib module can't
release the pages when user try to remove the module, as a result,
system hang.

[root@rdma05 root]# dmesg | grep addr | head
addr = 3fe384000
addr & PAGE_MASK = fe384000
[root@rdma05 root]# rmmod mlx5_ib <---- hang on
