[PATCH 3.16 098/306] mm: filemap: fix mapping->nrpages double accounting in fuse
From: Ben Hutchings
Date: Wed Feb 15 2017 - 18:17:10 EST
3.16.40-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.
From: Johannes Weiner <hannes@xxxxxxxxxxx>
commit 3ddf40e8c31964b744ff10abb48c8e36a83ec6e7 upstream.
Commit 22f2ac51b6d6 ("mm: workingset: fix crash in shadow node shrinker
caused by replace_page_cache_page()") switched replace_page_cache() from
raw radix tree operations to page_cache_tree_insert() but didn't take
into account that the latter function, unlike the raw radix tree op,
handles mapping->nrpages. As a result, that counter is bumped for each
page replacement rather than balanced out even.
The mapping->nrpages counter is used to skip needless radix tree walks
when invalidating, truncating, syncing inodes without pages, as well as
statistics for userspace. Since the error is positive, we'll do more
page cache tree walks than necessary; we won't miss a necessary one.
And we'll report more buffer pages to userspace than there are. The
error is limited to fuse inodes.
