SubjectRe: [PATCH -v2] rmap: make anon_vma_prepare link in all the anon_vmas of a mergeable VMA
From: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

Ok, did test with the all 5 patches applied. It oopsed with the same
trace, see below. Except one kernel/sched.c:3555 warning checking
spinlock count overflowing, nothing else. :(

I tried to see whether the page->mapping pointer is stale, I dunno,
maybe there could be something in the register dump which could tell us
what's happening. This is how I see it, I could very well be wrong and
missing something though:


So, yes, we oops at the same place, however, a bit early we do

anon_vma = page_lock_anon_vma(page);
if (!anon_vma)
return referenced;
which compiles here to

.loc 1 496 0
movq %rbx, %rdi # page,
call page_lock_anon_vma #
.LVL288:
.loc 1 497 0
testq %rax, %rax # anon_vma
.LVL289:
.loc 1 496 0
movq %rax, %r14 #, anon_vma

and I checked that on the path before the instruction where we oops we
don't touch %r14 so the value in the register dump below should be that
anon_vma. Which looks like valid kernel pointer. We dereference it later
to get anon_vma->head.next with

.loc 1 501 0
movq 64(%r14), %r13 # <variable>.head.next, <variable>.head.next
.LBE1287:
leaq 64(%r14), %rax #,
movq %rax, -128(%rbp) #, %sfp
.LBB1288:
subq $32, %r13 #, avc

which ends up in %r13 as ffffffffffffffe0.
So, it really looks like at least that list_head in anon_vma is
bollocks, or even the whole anon_vma. So if this is correct, it is
highly likely that the anon_vma is already freed material or not
initialized at all.

Hm...
