Subject[PATCHv3 10/11] mm: Do not loose dirty and access bits in pmdp_invalidate()
Date
Vlastimil noted that pmdp_invalidate() is not atomic and we can loose
dirty and access bits if CPU sets them after pmdp dereference, but
before set_pmd_at().

The patch change pmdp_invalidate() to make the entry non-present atomically and
return previous value of the entry. This value can be used to check if
CPU set dirty/accessed bits under us.

The race window is very small and I haven't seen any reports that can be
attributed to the bug. For this reason, I don't think backporting to
stable trees needed.
