Subject[PATCH 4.14 310/496] mm/vmstat.c: fix vmstat_update() preemption BUG
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: "Steven J. Hill" <steven.hill@cavium.com>

[ Upstream commit c7f26ccfb2c31eb1bf810ba13d044fcf583232db ]

Attempting to hotplug CPUs with CONFIG_VM_EVENT_COUNTERS enabled can
cause vmstat_update() to report a BUG due to preemption not being
disabled around smp_processor_id().

Discovered on Ubiquiti EdgeRouter Pro with Cavium Octeon II processor.

BUG: using smp_processor_id() in preemptible [00000000] code:
kworker/1:1/269
caller is vmstat_update+0x50/0xa0
CPU: 0 PID: 269 Comm: kworker/1:1 Not tainted
4.16.0-rc4-Cavium-Octeon-00009-gf83bbd5-dirty #1
Workqueue: mm_percpu_wq vmstat_update
Call Trace:
show_stack+0x94/0x128
dump_stack+0xa4/0xe0
check_preemption_disabled+0x118/0x120
