SubjectSuspicious error for CMA stress test
Date
Hi,

I came across a suspicious error for CMA stress test:

Before the test, I got:
-bash-4.3# cat /proc/meminfo | grep Cma
CmaTotal: 204800 kB
CmaFree: 195044 kB


After running the test:
-bash-4.3# cat /proc/meminfo | grep Cma
CmaTotal: 204800 kB
CmaFree: 6602584 kB

So the freed CMA memory is more than total..

Also the the MemFree is more than mem total:

-bash-4.3# cat /proc/meminfo
MemTotal: 16342016 kB
MemFree: 22367268 kB
MemAvailable: 22370528 kB

Here is the kernel module doing the stress test below (if the test case
is wrong, correct me), any help would be great appreciated.

The test is running on ARM64 platform (hisilicon D02) with 4.4 kernel, I think
the 4.5-rc is the same as I didn't notice the updates for it.

int malloc_dma(void *data)
{
void *vaddr;
struct platform_device * pdev=(struct platform_device*)data;
dma_addr_t dma_handle;
int i;

for(i=0; i<1000; i++) {
vaddr=dma_alloc_coherent(&pdev->dev, malloc_size, &dma_handle, GFP_KERNEL);
if (!vaddr)
pr_err("alloc cma memory failed!\n");

mdelay(1);

if (vaddr)
dma_free_coherent(&pdev->dev,malloc_size,vaddr, dma_handle);
}
pr_info("alloc free cma memory success return!\n");
return 0;
}

static int dma_alloc_coherent_init(struct platform_device *pdev)
{
int i;

for(i=0; i<100; i++) {
task[i] = kthread_create(malloc_dma,pdev,"malloc_dma_%d",i);
if(!task[i]) {
printk("kthread_create faile %d\n",i);
continue;
}
wake_up_process(task[i]);
}
return 0;
}

Thanks
Hanjun

The whole /proc/meminfo:
