Subject[PATCH 4.9 087/329] xen/grant-table: Use put_page instead of free_page
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Ross Lagerwall <ross.lagerwall@citrix.com>

[ Upstream commit 3ac7292a25db1c607a50752055a18aba32ac2176 ]

The page given to gnttab_end_foreign_access() to free could be a
compound page so use put_page() instead of free_page() since it can
handle both compound and single pages correctly.

This bug was discovered when migrating a Xen VM with several VIFs and
CONFIG_DEBUG_VM enabled. It hits a BUG usually after fewer than 10
iterations. All netfront devices disconnect from the backend during a
suspend/resume and this will call gnttab_end_foreign_access() if a
netfront queue has an outstanding skb. The mismatch between calling
get_page() and free_page() on a compound page causes a reference
counting error which is detected when DEBUG_VM is enabled.
