    hugetlbfs: fix kernel BUG at fs/hugetlbfs/inode.c:444! · f8d4c943

    commit 5e41540c8a0f0e98c337dda8b391e5dda0cde7cf upstream.
    This bug has been experienced several times by the Oracle DB team.  The
    BUG is in remove_inode_hugepages() as follows:
    	 * If page is mapped, it was faulted in after being
    	 * unmapped in caller.  Unmap (again) now after taking
    	 * the fault mutex.  The mutex will prevent faults
    	 * until we finish removing the page.
    	 * This race can only happen in the hole punch case.
    	 * Getting here in a truncate operation is a bug.
    	if (unlikely(page_mapped(page))) {
    In this case, the elevated map count is not the result of a race.
    Rather it was incorrectly incremented as the result of a bug in the huge
    pmd sharing code.  Consider the following:
     - Process A maps a hugetlbfs file of sufficient size and alignment
       (PUD_SIZE) that a pmd page could be shared.
     - Process B maps the same hugetlbfs file with the same size and
       alignment such that a pmd page is shared.
     - Process B then calls mprotect() to change protections for the mapping
       with the shared pmd. As a result, the pmd is 'unshared'.
     - Process B then calls mprotect() again to chage protections for the
       mapping back to their original value. pmd remains unshared.
     - Process B then forks and process C is created. During the fork
       process, we do dup_mm -> dup_mmap -> copy_page_range to copy page
       tables. Copying page tables for hugetlb mappings is done in the
       routine copy_hugetlb_page_range.
    In copy_hugetlb_page_range(), the destination pte is obtained by:
    	dst_pte = huge_pte_alloc(dst, addr, sz);
    If pmd sharing is possible, the returned pointer will be to a pte in an
    existing page table.  In the situation above, process C could share with
    either process A or process B.  Since process A is first in the list,
    the returned pte is a pointer to a pte in process A's page table.
    However, the check for pmd sharing in copy_hugetlb_page_range is:
    	/* If the pagetables are shared don't copy or take references */
    	if (dst_pte == src_pte)
    Since process C is sharing with process A instead of process B, the
    above test fails.  The code in copy_hugetlb_page_range which follows
    assumes dst_pte points to a huge_pte_none pte.  It copies the pte entry
    from src_pte to dst_pte and increments this map count of the associated
    page.  This is how we end up with an elevated map count.
    To solve, check the dst_pte entry for huge_pte_none.  If !none, this
    implies PMD sharing so do not copy.
