Subject[PATCH v7 01/22] Fix XIP fault vs truncate race
Date
Pagecache faults recheck i_size after taking the page lock to ensure that
the fault didn't race against a truncate. We don't have a page to lock
in the XIP case, so use the i_mmap_mutex instead. It is locked in the
truncate path in unmap_mapping_range() after updating i_size. So while
we hold it in the fault path, we are guaranteed that either i_size has
already been updated in the truncate path, or that the truncate will
subsequently call zap_page_range_single() and so remove the mapping we
have just inserted.

There is a window of time in which i_size has been reduced and the
thread has a mapping to a page which will be removed from the file,
but this is harmless as the page will not be allocated to a different
purpose before the thread's access to it is revoked.
