Subject[PATCH][RFC] fix kernel BUG at mm/migrate.c:719! in 2.6.26-rc5-mm3
Hi.

I got this bug while migrating pages only a few times
via memory_migrate of cpuset.

Unfortunately, even if this patch is applied,
I got bad_page problem after hundreds times of page migration
(I'll report it in another mail).
But I believe something like this patch is needed anyway.

This bug is caused by VM_BUG_ON() in unmap_and_move().

unmap_and_move()
710 if (rc != -EAGAIN) {
711 /*
712 * A page that has been migrated has all references
713 * removed and will be freed. A page that has not been
714 * migrated will have kepts its references and be
715 * restored.
716 */
717 list_del(&page->lru);
718 if (!page->mapping) {
719 VM_BUG_ON(page_count(page) != 1);
720 unlock_page(page);
721 put_page(page); /* just free the old page */
722 goto end_migration;
723 } else
724 unlock = putback_lru_page(page);
725 }
I think the page count is not necessarily 1 here, because
migration_entry_wait increases page count and waits for the
page to be unlocked.
So, if the old page is accessed between migrate_page_move_mapping,
which checks the page count, and remove_migration_ptes, page count
would not be 1 here.

Actually, just commenting out get/put_page from migration_entry_wait
works well in my environment(succeeded in hundreds times of page migration),
but modifying migration_entry_wait this way is not good, I think.


This patch depends on Lee Schermerhorn's fix for double unlock_page.

This patch also fixes a race between migrate_entry_wait and
page_freeze_refs in migrate_page_move_mapping.
