Subject[PATCH -mm] mm: Fix race between swapoff and mincore
Date
From: Huang Ying <ying.huang@intel.com>

From commit 4b3ef9daa4fc ("mm/swap: split swap cache into 64MB
trunks") on, after swapoff, the address_space associated with the swap
device will be freed. So swap_address_space() users which touch the
address_space need some kind of mechanism to prevent the address_space
from being freed during accessing.

When mincore process unmapped range for swapped shmem pages, it
doesn't hold the lock to prevent swap device from being swapoff. So
the following race is possible,

CPU1 CPU2
do_mincore() swapoff()
walk_page_range()
mincore_unmapped_range()
__mincore_unmapped_range
mincore_page
as = swap_address_space()
... exit_swap_address_space()
... kvfree(spaces)
find_get_page(as)

The address space may be accessed after being freed.

To fix the race, get_swap_device()/put_swap_device() is used to
enclose find_get_page() to check whether the swap entry is valid and
prevent the swap device from being swapoff during accessing.
