[PATCH 4.6 062/203] ARM: 8579/1: mm: Fix definition of pmd_mknotpresent

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Jul 25 2016 - 18:18:42 EST

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


From: Steve Capper <steve.capper@xxxxxxx>

commit 56530f5d2ddc9b9fade7ef8db9cb886e9dc689b5 upstream.

Currently pmd_mknotpresent will use a zero entry to respresent an
invalidated pmd.

Unfortunately this definition clashes with pmd_none, thus it is
possible for a race condition to occur if zap_pmd_range sees pmd_none
whilst __split_huge_pmd_locked is running too with pmdp_invalidate
just called.

This patch fixes the race condition by modifying pmd_mknotpresent to
create non-zero faulting entries (as is done in other architectures),
removing the ambiguity with pmd_none.

[catalin.marinas@xxxxxxx: using L_PMD_SECT_VALID instead of PMD_TYPE_SECT]

Fixes: 8d9625070073 ("ARM: mm: Transparent huge page support for LPAE systems.")
