Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.18 097/100] mm/migrate.c: split only transparent huge pages when allocation fails
Date
From: Anshuman Khandual <anshuman.khandual@arm.com>

[ Upstream commit e6112fc300702f96374f34368513d57795fc6d23 ]

split_huge_page_to_list() fails on HugeTLB pages. I was experimenting
with moving 32MB contig HugeTLB pages on arm64 (with a debug patch
applied) and hit the following stack trace when the kernel crashed.

[ 3732.462797] Call trace:
[ 3732.462835] split_huge_page_to_list+0x3b0/0x858
[ 3732.462913] migrate_pages+0x728/0xc20

[ 3732.463297] el0_svc+0x8/0xc
[ 3732.463347] Code: d1000400 f90b0e60 f2fbd5a2 a94982a1 (f9000420)

When unmap_and_move[_huge_page]() fails due to lack of memory, the
splitting should happen only for transparent huge pages not for HugeTLB
pages. PageTransHuge() returns true for both THP and HugeTLB pages.
Hence the conditonal check should test PagesHuge() flag to make sure that
given pages is not a HugeTLB one.
