Subject[PATCH] mm, vmalloc: properly track vmalloc users
Date
From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.com>

__vmalloc_node_flags used to be static inline but this has changed by
"mm: introduce kv[mz]alloc helpers" because kvmalloc_node needs to use
it as well and the code is outside of the vmalloc proper. I haven't
realized that changing this will lead to a subtle bug though. The
function is responsible to track the caller as well. This caller is
then printed by /proc/vmallocinfo. If __vmalloc_node_flags is not inline
then we would get only direct users of __vmalloc_node_flags as callers
(e.g. v[mz]alloc) which reduces usefulness of this debugging feature
considerably. It simply doesn't help to see that the given range belongs
to vmalloc as a caller:
0xffffc90002c79000-0xffffc90002c7d000 16384 vmalloc+0x16/0x18 pages=3 vmalloc N0=3
0xffffc90002c81000-0xffffc90002c85000 16384 vmalloc+0x16/0x18 pages=3 vmalloc N1=3
0xffffc90002c8d000-0xffffc90002c91000 16384 vmalloc+0x16/0x18 pages=3 vmalloc N1=3
0xffffc90002c95000-0xffffc90002c99000 16384 vmalloc+0x16/0x18 pages=3 vmalloc N1=3

We really want to catch the _caller_ of the vmalloc function. Fix this
issue by making __vmalloc_node_flags static inline again.

Hi Andrew,
this is a follow up fix for mm-introduce-kvalloc-helpers.patch currently
sitting in your mmotm tree. You can either fold this into it or just
keep it on its own which I would consider slightly better for the
reference. Anyway it would be great if it could hit the Linus' tree
along with the original patch.

I am sorry, I should have noticed this earlier.
