Subject[PATCH 2/2] dax: wrprotect pmd_t in dax_mapping_entry_mkclean
Date
Currently dax_mapping_entry_mkclean() fails to clean and write protect the
pmd_t of a DAX PMD entry during an *sync operation. This can result in
data loss in the following sequence:

1) mmap write to DAX PMD, dirtying PMD radix tree entry and making the
pmd_t dirty and writeable
2) fsync, flushing out PMD data and cleaning the radix tree entry. We
currently fail to mark the pmd_t as clean and write protected.
3) more mmap writes to the PMD. These don't cause any page faults since
the pmd_t is dirty and writeable. The radix tree entry remains clean.
4) fsync, which fails to flush the dirty PMD data because the radix tree
entry was clean.
5) crash - dirty data that should have been fsync'd as part of 4) could
still have been in the processor cache, and is lost.

Fix this by marking the pmd_t clean and write protected in
dax_mapping_entry_mkclean(), which is called as part of the fsync
operation 2). This will cause the writes in step 3) above to generate page
faults where we'll re-dirty the PMD radix tree entry, resulting in flushes
in the fsync that happens in step 4).
