Subject[PATCH 01/10] mm: numa: Do not dereference pmd outside of the lock during NUMA hinting fault
Date
A transhuge NUMA hinting fault may find the page is migrating and should
wait until migration completes. The check is race-prone because the pmd
is deferenced outside of the page lock and while the race is tiny, it'll
be larger if the PMD is cleared while marking PMDs for hinting fault.
This patch closes the race.
