[PATCH 4.4 55/91] mm: mlock: avoid increase mm->locked_vm on mlock() when already mlock2(,MLOCK_ONFAULT)

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

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


From: Simon Guo <wei.guo.simon@xxxxxxxxx>

commit b155b4fde5bdde9fed439cd1f5ea07173df2ed31 upstream.

When one vma was with flag VM_LOCKED|VM_LOCKONFAULT (by invoking
mlock2(,MLOCK_ONFAULT)), it can again be populated with mlock() with
VM_LOCKED flag only.

There is a hole in mlock_fixup() which increase mm->locked_vm twice even
the two operations are on the same vma and both with VM_LOCKED flags.

The issue can be reproduced by following code:

mlock(p, 1024 * 64); //VM_LOCKED

Then check the increase VmLck field in /proc/pid/status(to 128k).

When vma is set with different vm_flags, and the new vm_flags is with
VM_LOCKED, it is not necessarily be a "new locked" vma. This patch
corrects this bug by prevent mm->locked_vm from increment when old
vm_flags is already VM_LOCKED.
