SubjectRe: [RFC][PATCH] fix move/migrate_pages() race on task struct
Here is a cleaned up version of the patch. No longer rely on the
task_struct pointer to be NULL for release of the refcount.




Subject: migration: Fix rcu and task refcounting

Migration functions perform the rcu_read_unlock too early. As a result the
task pointed to may change from under us.

The following patch extend the period of the rcu_read_lock until after the
permissions checks are done. We also take a refcount so that the task
reference is stable when calling security check functions and performing
cpuset node validation (which takes a mutex).

The refcount is dropped before actual page migration occurs so there is no
change to the refcounts held during page migration.

Also move the determination of the mm of the task struct to immediately
before the do_migrate*() calls so that it is clear that we switch from
handling the task during permission checks to the mm for the actual
migration. Since the determination is only done once and we then no longer
use the task_struct we can be sure that we operate on a specific address
space that will not change from under us.
