Subject[PATCHv3 00/11] Do not loose dirty bit on THP pages
Vlastimil noted that pmdp_invalidate() is not atomic and we can loose
dirty and access bits if CPU sets them after pmdp dereference, but
before set_pmd_at().

The bug can lead to data loss, but the race window is tiny and I haven't
seen any reports that suggested that it happens in reality. So I don't
think it worth sending it to stable.

Unfortunately, there's no way to address the issue in a generic way. We need to
fix all architectures that support THP one-by-one.

All architectures that have THP supported have to provide atomic
pmdp_invalidate() that returns previous value.

If generic implementation of pmdp_invalidate() is used, architecture needs to
provide atomic pmdp_estabish().

pmdp_estabish() is not used out-side generic implementation of
pmdp_invalidate() so far, but I think this can change in the future.
