Subject[PATCH 4.9 02/41] mm: fix list corruptions on shmem shrinklist
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Cong Wang <xiyou.wangcong@gmail.com>

commit d041353dc98a6339182cd6f628b4c8f111278cb3 upstream.

We saw many list corruption warnings on shmem shrinklist:

The problem is that shmem_unused_huge_shrink() moves entries from the
global sbinfo->shrinklist to its local lists and then releases the
spinlock. However, a parallel shmem_setattr() could access one of these
entries directly and add it back to the global shrinklist if it is
removed, with the spinlock held.

The logic itself looks solid since an entry could be either in a local
list or the global list, otherwise it is removed from one of them by
list_del_init(). So probably the race condition is that, one CPU is in
the middle of INIT_LIST_HEAD() but the other CPU calls list_empty()
which returns true too early then the following list_add_tail() sees a
corrupted entry.

list_empty_careful() is designed to fix this situation.
