[PATCH V2 0/2] mm/debug: Add tests for architecture exported page table helpers

From: Anshuman Khandual
Date: Thu Sep 12 2019 - 02:03:11 EST

This series adds a test validation for architecture exported page table
helpers. Patch in the series adds basic transformation tests at various
levels of the page table. Before that it exports gigantic page allocation
function from HugeTLB.

This test was originally suggested by Catalin during arm64 THP migration
RFC discussion earlier. Going forward it can include more specific tests
with respect to various generic MM functions like THP, HugeTLB etc and
platform specific tests.



Successfully build and boot tested on both arm64 and x86 platforms without
any test failing. Only build tested on some other platforms.

But I would really appreciate if folks can help validate this test on other
platforms and report back problems. All suggestions, comments and inputs
welcome. Thank you.

Changes in V2:

- Fixed small typo error in MODULE_DESCRIPTION()
- Fixed m64k build problems for lvalue concerns in pmd_xxx_tests()
- Fixed dynamic page table level folding problems on x86 as per Kirril
- Fixed second pointers during pxx_populate_tests() per Kirill and Gerald
- Allocate and free pte table with pte_alloc_one/pte_free per Kirill
- Modified pxx_clear_tests() to accommodate s390 lower 12 bits situation
- Changed RANDOM_NZVALUE value from 0xbe to 0xff
- Changed allocation, usage, free sequence for saved_ptep
- Implemented a new method for random vaddr generation
- Implemented some other cleanups
- Dropped extern reference to mm_alloc()
- Created and exported new alloc_gigantic_page_order()
- Dropped the custom allocator and used new alloc_gigantic_page_order()

Changes in V1:


- Added fallback mechanism for PMD aligned memory allocation failure

Changes in RFC V2:


- Moved test module and it's config from lib/ to mm/
- Renamed file from test_arch_pgtable.c to arch_pgtable_test.c
- Added relevant MODULE_DESCRIPTION() and MODULE_AUTHOR() details
- Dropped loadable module config option
- Basic tests now use memory blocks with required size and alignment
- PUD aligned memory block gets allocated with alloc_contig_range()
- If PUD aligned memory could not be allocated it falls back on PMD aligned
memory block from page allocator and pud_* tests are skipped
- Clear and populate tests now operate on real in memory page table entries
- Dummy mm_struct gets allocated with mm_alloc()
- Dummy page table entries get allocated with [pud|pmd|pte]_alloc_[map]()
- Simplified [p4d|pgd]_basic_tests(), now has random values in the entries
