Subject[PATCH 3.4 099/176] mm: fix corner case in anon_vma endless growing prevention
Date
From: Konstantin Khlebnikov <koct9i@gmail.com>

3.4.107-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------


commit b800c91a0517071156e772d4fb329ad33590da62 upstream.

Fix for BUG_ON(anon_vma->degree) splashes in unlink_anon_vmas() ("kernel
BUG at mm/rmap.c:399!") caused by commit 7a3ef208e662 ("mm: prevent
endless growth of anon_vma hierarchy")

Anon_vma_clone() is usually called for a copy of source vma in
destination argument. If source vma has anon_vma it should be already
in dst->anon_vma. NULL in dst->anon_vma is used as a sign that it's
called from anon_vma_fork(). In this case anon_vma_clone() finds
anon_vma for reusing.

Vma_adjust() calls it differently and this breaks anon_vma reusing
logic: anon_vma_clone() links vma to old anon_vma and updates degree
counters but vma_adjust() overrides vma->anon_vma right after that. As
a result final unlink_anon_vmas() decrements degree for wrong anon_vma.

This patch assigns ->anon_vma before calling anon_vma_clone().
