It broke modules, but I don't remember anything hugepage related.

So the code changed from:

-#define ptep_set_access_flags(__vma, __address, __ptep, __entry, __dirty) \
-({ \
- int __changed = !pte_same(*(__ptep), __entry); \
- if (__changed) { \
- __ptep_set_access_flags(__ptep, __entry, __dirty); \
- flush_tlb_page_nohash(__vma, __address); \
- } \
- __changed; \
-})

to:

+int ptep_set_access_flags(struct vm_area_struct *vma, unsigned long address,
+ pte_t *ptep, pte_t entry, int dirty)
+{
+ int changed;
+ if (!dirty && pte_need_exec_flush(entry, 0))
+ entry = do_dcache_icache_coherency(entry);
+ changed = !pte_same(*(ptep), entry);
+ if (changed) {
+ assert_pte_locked(vma->vm_mm, address);
+ __ptep_set_access_flags(ptep, entry);
+ flush_tlb_page_nohash(vma, address);
+ }
+ return changed;
+}

So the call to assert_pte_locked() is new. And it's never going to work
for huge pages, the page table structure is different right? Notice
pte_update() checks (arch/powerpc/include/asm/pgtable-ppc64.h):

198 /* huge pages use the old page table lock */
199 if (!huge)
200 assert_pte_locked(mm, addr);

But unlike pte_update() ptep_set_access_flags() has no way of knowing
it's been called from huge_ptep_set_access_flags().

So my guess is we either remove the call to assert_pte_locked() in
there, or have assert_pte_locked() check whether it's being called for a
huge pte.

cheers
