Subject[PATCH 1/2] mm/zswap: bugfix: memory leak when invalidate and reclaim occur concurrently
Date
Consider the following scenario:
thread 0: reclaim entry x (get refcount, but not call zswap_get_swap_cache_page)
thread 1: call zswap_frontswap_invalidate_page to invalidate entry x.
finished, entry x and its zbud is not freed as its refcount != 0
now, the swap_map[x] = 0
thread 0: now call zswap_get_swap_cache_page
swapcache_prepare return -ENOENT because entry x is not used any more
zswap_get_swap_cache_page return ZSWAP_SWAPCACHE_NOMEM
zswap_writeback_entry do nothing except put refcount
Now, the memory of zswap_entry x and its zpage leak.

Modify:
- check the refcount in fail path, free memory if it is not referenced.

- use ZSWAP_SWAPCACHE_FAIL instead of ZSWAP_SWAPCACHE_NOMEM as the fail path
can be not only caused by nomem but also by invalidate.
