Subject[PATCH 4.4 25/87] mm/compaction: fix invalid free_pfn and compact_cached_free_pfn
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Joonsoo Kim <iamjoonsoo.kim@lge.com>

commit 623446e4dc45b37740268165107cc63abb3022f0 upstream.

free_pfn and compact_cached_free_pfn are the pointer that remember
restart position of freepage scanner. When they are reset or invalid,
we set them to zone_end_pfn because freepage scanner works in reverse
direction. But, because zone range is defined as [zone_start_pfn,
zone_end_pfn), zone_end_pfn is invalid to access. Therefore, we should
not store it to free_pfn and compact_cached_free_pfn. Instead, we need
to store zone_end_pfn - 1 to them. There is one more thing we should
consider. Freepage scanner scan reversely by pageblock unit. If
free_pfn and compact_cached_free_pfn are set to middle of pageblock, it
regards that sitiation as that it already scans front part of pageblock
so we lose opportunity to scan there. To fix-up, this patch do
round_down() to guarantee that reset position will be pageblock aligned.

Note that thanks to the current pageblock_pfn_to_page() implementation,
actual access to zone_end_pfn doesn't happen until now. But, following
patch will change pageblock_pfn_to_page() so this patch is needed from
now on.
