[PATCH 4.5 132/200] mm: exclude HugeTLB pages from THP page_mapped() logic

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

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


From: Steve Capper <steve.capper@xxxxxxx>

commit 66ee95d16a7f1b7b4f1dd74a2d81c6e19dc29a14 upstream.

HugeTLB pages cannot be split, so we use the compound_mapcount to track

Currently page_mapped() will check the compound_mapcount, but will also
go through the constituent pages of a THP compound page and query the
individual _mapcount's too.

Unfortunately, page_mapped() does not distinguish between HugeTLB and
THP compound pages and assumes that a compound page always needs to have
HPAGE_PMD_NR pages querying.

For most cases when dealing with HugeTLB this is just inefficient, but
for scenarios where the HugeTLB page size is less than the pmd block
size (e.g. when using contiguous bit on ARM) this can lead to crashes.

This patch adjusts the page_mapped function such that we skip the
unnecessary THP reference checks for HugeTLB pages.
