Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.9 146/190] mm: hwpoison: call shake_page() after try_to_unmap() for mlocked page
Date
From: Naoya Horiguchi <n-horiguchi@ah.jp.nec.com>

[ Upstream commit 286c469a988fbaf68e3a97ddf1e6c245c1446968 ]

Memory error handler calls try_to_unmap() for error pages in various
states. If the error page is a mlocked page, error handling could fail
with "still referenced by 1 users" message. This is because the page is
linked to and stays in lru cache after the following call chain.

try_to_unmap_one
page_remove_rmap
clear_page_mlock
putback_lru_page
lru_cache_add

memory_failure() calls shake_page() to hanlde the similar issue, but
current code doesn't cover because shake_page() is called only before
try_to_unmap(). So this patches adds shake_page().

Fixes: 23a003bfd23ea9ea0b7756b920e51f64b284b468 ("mm/madvise: pass return code of memory_failure() to userspace")
