[PATCH 5.19 042/101] mm/migrate_device.c: copy pte dirty bit to page

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

commit fd35ca3d12cc9922d7d9a35f934e72132dbc4853 upstream.

migrate_vma_setup() has a fast path in migrate_vma_collect_pmd() that
installs migration entries directly if it can lock the migrating page.
When removing a dirty pte the dirty bit is supposed to be carried over to
the underlying page to prevent it being lost.

Currently migrate_vma_*() can only be used for private anonymous mappings.
That means loss of the dirty bit usually doesn't result in data loss
because these pages are typically not file-backed. However pages may be
backed by swap storage which can result in data loss if an attempt is made
to migrate a dirty page that doesn't yet have the PageDirty flag set.

In this case migration will fail due to unexpected references but the
dirty pte bit will be lost. If the page is subsequently reclaimed data
won't be written back to swap storage as it is considered uptodate,
resulting in data loss if the page is subsequently accessed.

Prevent this by copying the dirty bit to the page when removing the pte to
match what try_to_migrate_one() does.
