Thank you Xishi, I added it to the current (still draft) version below.

I start feeling that current code is broken about behavior of PageHWPoison
(at least) in soft offline. And this patch might not cover all of the issues.
My current questions/concerns are:

- does the same issue happens on soft offlining of normal pages?
- does hard offling of free (huge) page have the similar issue?

I'll try to clarify these next and will update the patch if necessary.
I'm happy if I get some comment around these.

Thanks,
Naoya Horiguchi

Subject: [PATCH] mm: fix race on soft-offlining free huge pages

There's a race condition between soft offline and hugetlb_fault which
causes unexpected process killing and/or hugetlb allocation failure.

The process killing is caused by the following flow:

CPU 0 CPU 1 CPU 2

soft offline
get_any_page
// find the hugetlb is free
mmap a hugetlb file
page fault
...
hugetlb_fault
hugetlb_no_page
alloc_huge_page
// succeed
soft_offline_free_page
// set hwpoison flag
mmap the hugetlb file
page fault
...
hugetlb_fault
hugetlb_no_page
find_lock_page
return VM_FAULT_HWPOISON
mm_fault_error
do_sigbus
// kill the process


The hugetlb allocation failure comes from the following flow:

CPU 0 CPU 1

mmap a hugetlb file
// reserve all free page but don't fault-in
soft offline
get_any_page
// find the hugetlb is free
soft_offline_free_page
// set hwpoison flag
dissolve_free_huge_page
// fail because all free hugepages are reserved
page fault
...
hugetlb_fault
hugetlb_no_page
alloc_huge_page
...
dequeue_huge_page_node_exact
// ignore hwpoisoned hugepage
// and finally fail due to no-mem

The root cause of this is that current soft-offline code is written
based on an assumption that PageHWPoison flag should beset at first to
avoid accessing the corrupted data. This makes sense for memory_failure()
or hard offline, but does not for soft offline because soft offline is
not about corrected error and is safe from data lost.
This patch changes soft offline semantics where it sets PageHWPoison flag
only after containment of the error page completes succesfully.
