[PATCH v4 0/3] mm/hugetlb: memory offline issues with hugepages

From: Gerald Schaefer
Date: Mon Sep 26 2016 - 13:29:28 EST

This addresses several issues with hugepages and memory offline. While
the first patch fixes a panic, and is therefore rather important, the
last patch is just a performance optimization.

The second patch fixes a theoretical issue with reserved hugepages,
while still leaving some ugly usability issue, see description.

Changes in v4:
- Add check for free vs. reserved hugepages
- Revalidate checks in dissolve_free_huge_page() after taking the lock
- Split up into 3 patches

Changes in v3:
- Add Fixes: c8721bbb
- Add Cc: stable
- Elaborate on losing the gigantic page vs. failing memory offline
- Move page_count() check out of dissolve_free_huge_page()

Changes in v2:
- Update comment in dissolve_free_huge_pages()
- Change locking in dissolve_free_huge_page()

Gerald Schaefer (3):
mm/hugetlb: fix memory offline with hugepage size > memory block size
mm/hugetlb: check for reserved hugepages during memory offline
mm/hugetlb: improve locking in dissolve_free_huge_pages()
