Subject[PATCH 3.18 083/120] mm: madvise(MADV_DODUMP): allow hugetlbfs pages
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Daniel Black <daniel@linux.ibm.com>

commit d41aa5252394c065d1f04d1ceea885b70d00c9c6 upstream.

Reproducer, assuming 2M of hugetlbfs available:

Hugetlbfs mounted, size=2M and option user=testuser

# mount | grep ^hugetlbfs
hugetlbfs on /dev/hugepages type hugetlbfs (rw,pagesize=2M,user=dan)
# sysctl vm.nr_hugepages=1
vm.nr_hugepages = 1
# grep Huge /proc/meminfo
AnonHugePages: 0 kB
ShmemHugePages: 0 kB
HugePages_Total: 1
HugePages_Free: 1
HugePages_Rsvd: 0
HugePages_Surp: 0
Hugepagesize: 2048 kB
Hugetlb: 2048 kB

Code:

#include <sys/mman.h>
#include <stddef.h>
#define SIZE 2*1024*1024
int main()
{
void *ptr;
ptr = mmap(NULL, SIZE, PROT_READ | PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE | MAP_HUGETLB | MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0);
madvise(ptr, SIZE, MADV_DONTDUMP);
madvise(ptr, SIZE, MADV_DODUMP);
}

Compile and strace:

mmap(NULL, 2097152, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS|MAP_HUGETLB, -1, 0) = 0x7ff7c9200000
madvise(0x7ff7c9200000, 2097152, MADV_DONTDUMP) = 0
madvise(0x7ff7c9200000, 2097152, MADV_DODUMP) = -1 EINVAL (Invalid argument)

hugetlbfs pages have VM_DONTEXPAND in the VmFlags driver pages based on
author testing with analysis from Florian Weimer[1].

The inclusion of VM_DONTEXPAND into the VM_SPECIAL defination was a
consequence of the large useage of VM_DONTEXPAND in device drivers.

A consequence of [2] is that VM_DONTEXPAND marked pages are unable to be
marked DODUMP.

A user could quite legitimately madvise(MADV_DONTDUMP) their hugetlbfs
memory for a while and later request that madvise(MADV_DODUMP) on the same
memory. We correct this omission by allowing madvice(MADV_DODUMP) on
hugetlbfs pages.
