Subject[PATCH v3 9/9] mm, hugetlb: decrement reserve count if VM_NORESERVE alloc page cache
Date
If a vma with VM_NORESERVE allocate a new page for page cache, we should
check whether this area is reserved or not. If this address is
already reserved by other process(in case of chg == 0), we should
decrement reserve count, because this allocated page will go into page
cache and currently, there is no way to know that this page comes from
reserved pool or not when releasing inode. This may introduce
over-counting problem to reserved count. With following example code,
you can easily reproduce this situation.

Assume 2MB, nr_hugepages = 100

size = 20 * MB;
flag = MAP_SHARED;
p = mmap(NULL, size, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, flag, fd, 0);
if (p == MAP_FAILED) {
fprintf(stderr, "mmap() failed: %s\n", strerror(errno));
return -1;
}

flag = MAP_SHARED | MAP_NORESERVE;
q = mmap(NULL, size, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, flag, fd, 0);
if (q == MAP_FAILED) {
fprintf(stderr, "mmap() failed: %s\n", strerror(errno));
}
q[0] = 'c';

After finish the program, run 'cat /proc/meminfo'.
You can see below result.

HugePages_Free: 100
HugePages_Rsvd: 1

To fix this, we should check our mapping type and tracked region.
If our mapping is VM_NORESERVE, VM_MAYSHARE and chg is 0, this imply
that current allocated page will go into page cache which is already
reserved region when mapping is created. In this case, we should decrease
reserve count. As implementing above, this patch solve the problem.
