Subject[PATCHv2] procfs: fix /proc/<pid>/maps heap check
Date
The current code fails to print the "[heap]" marking if the heap is
splitted into multiple mappings.

Fix the check so that the marking is displayed in all possible cases:
1. vma matches exactly the heap
2. the heap vma is merged e.g. with bss
3. the heap vma is splitted e.g. due to locked pages

v2: Rewrote the changelog.

Test cases. In all cases, the process should have mapping(s) with
[heap] marking:

(1) vma matches exactly the heap

#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/types.h>

int main (void)
{
if (sbrk(4096) != (void *)-1) {
printf("check /proc/%d/maps\n", (int)getpid());
while (1)
sleep(1);
}
return 0;
}

# ./test1
check /proc/553/maps
[1] + Stopped ./test1
# cat /proc/553/maps | head -4
00008000-00009000 r-xp 00000000 01:00 3113640 /test1
00010000-00011000 rw-p 00000000 01:00 3113640 /test1
00011000-00012000 rw-p 00000000 00:00 0 [heap]
4006f000-40070000 rw-p 00000000 00:00 0

(2) the heap vma is merged

#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/types.h>

char foo[4096] = "foo";
char bar[4096];

int main (void)
{
if (sbrk(4096) != (void *)-1) {
printf("check /proc/%d/maps\n", (int)getpid());
while (1)
sleep(1);
}
return 0;
}

# ./test2
check /proc/556/maps
[2] + Stopped ./test2
# cat /proc/556/maps | head -4
00008000-00009000 r-xp 00000000 01:00 3116312 /test2
00010000-00012000 rw-p 00000000 01:00 3116312 /test2
00012000-00014000 rw-p 00000000 00:00 0 [heap]
4004a000-4004b000 rw-p 00000000 00:00 0

(3) the heap vma is splitted (this fails without the patch)

#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/mman.h>
#include <sys/types.h>

int main (void)
{
if ((sbrk(4096) != (void *)-1) && !mlockall(MCL_FUTURE) &&
(sbrk(4096) != (void *)-1)) {
printf("check /proc/%d/maps\n", (int)getpid());
while (1)
sleep(1);
}
return 0;
}

# ./test3
check /proc/559/maps
[1] + Stopped ./test3
# cat /proc/559/maps|head -4
00008000-00009000 r-xp 00000000 01:00 3119108 /test3
00010000-00011000 rw-p 00000000 01:00 3119108 /test3
00011000-00012000 rw-p 00000000 00:00 0 [heap]
00012000-00013000 rw-p 00000000 00:00 0 [heap]
