Subject[PATCH 0/2] mm hugetlb x86: add hugepage support to pagemap
Hi,

Most callers of pmd_none_or_clear_bad() check whether the target
page is in a hugepage or not, but mincore() and walk_page_range() do
not check it. So if we read /proc/pid/pagemap for the hugepage
on x86 machine, the hugepage memory is leaked as shown below.
This patch fixes it by extending pagemap interface to support hugepages.

I split this fix into two patches. The first patch just adds the check
for hugepages, and the second patch adds a new member to struct mm_walk
to handle the hugepages.

Details
=======
My test program (leak_pagemap) works as follows:
- creat() and mmap() a file on hugetlbfs (file size is 200MB == 100 hugepages,)
- read()/write() something on it,
- call page-types with option -p,
- munmap() and unlink() the file on hugetlbfs

Without my patches
------------------
$ cat /proc/meminfo |grep "HugePage"
HugePages_Total: 1000
HugePages_Free: 1000
HugePages_Rsvd: 0
HugePages_Surp: 0
$ ./leak_pagemap

HugePages_Total: 1000
HugePages_Free: 900
HugePages_Rsvd: 0
HugePages_Surp: 0
$ ls /hugetlbfs/
$

The output of page-types don't show any hugepage, and 100 hugepages are
accounted as used while there is no file on hugetlbfs

$

The output of page-types shows 51200 pages contributing to hugepages,
containing 100 head pages and 51100 tail pages as expected.
And no memory leaks.

Thanks,
