Subject[PATCH v2] hugetlbfs: add O_TMPFILE support
Date
With hugetlbfs, a common pattern for mapping anonymous huge pages
is to create a temporary file first. Currently libraries like
libhugetlbfs and seastar create these with a standard mkstemp+unlink
trick, but it would be more robust to be able to simply pass
the O_TMPFILE flag to open(). O_TMPFILE is already supported by several
file systems like ext4 and xfs. The implementation simply uses the existing
d_tmpfile utility function to instantiate the dcache entry for the file.

Tested manually by successfully creating a temporary file by opening
it with (O_TMPFILE|O_RDWR) on mounted hugetlbfs and successfully
mapping 2M huge pages with it. Without the patch, trying to open
a file with O_TMPFILE results in -ENOSUP.

v2 changes:
* syzkaller thankfully discovered a bug during unmount - tmpfile
erroneously called dget() on a dentry when creating a tmpfile,
and it was never countered by a dput(), because tmpfile is never
explicitly unlinked. In v2, dget() is simply not called for tmpfile.
Verified manually, and also with the reproducer provided by syzkaller.
