Subject"swap_free: Bad swap file entry" and "BUG: Bad page map in process" but no swap configured

I have Linux host running as a kvm hypervisor. It's running CentOS. (So the
kernel is based on 3.10 but with loads of stuff backported by RedHat.) I
realize this is not a mainline kernel, but I was wondering if anyone is aware of
similar issues that had been fixed in mainline.

When doing a bunch of live migrations eventually I hit a bunch of errors that
look like this.

One interesting thing about the "Bad swap file entry" error is that these hosts
do not have any swap configured:

compute-4:~$ free
total used free shared buff/cache available
Mem: 131805464 122187644 8815864 245456 801956 9193644
Swap: 0 0 0

So why is the kernel calling swap_info_get()?


In the second error, the offset in the SyS_madvise routine is here:
0xffffffff8115dd77 <+951>: callq 0xffffffff81161490 <zap_page_range>
0xffffffff8115dd7c <+956>: xor %eax,%eax

this maps to the second zap_page_range() call below in madvise_dontneed():

if (unlikely(vma->vm_flags & VM_NONLINEAR)) {
struct zap_details details = {
.nonlinear_vma = vma,
.last_index = ULONG_MAX,
};
zap_page_range(vma, start, end - start, &details);
} else
zap_page_range(vma, start, end - start, NULL);


print_bad_pte() is called from this code in zap_pte_range():

if (pte_file(ptent)) {
if (unlikely(!(vma->vm_flags & VM_NONLINEAR)))
print_bad_pte(vma, addr, ptent, NULL);

Here's the interesting bit...we're calling print_bad_pte() here if
"vma->vm_flags & VM_NONLINEAR" is not true...but we called zap_page_range() with
a "details" of NULL specifically because it was not true. So probably
pte_file(ptent) should not be true--but it is.


Any of this sound familiar to anyone? Anyone have suggestions on how to bottom
it out?

Chris
