Subject[PATCH 1/2] mm/compaction.c: correct zone boundary handling when resetting pageblock skip hints
Date
Mikhail Gavrilo reported the following bug being triggered in a Fedora
kernel based on 5.1-rc1 but it is relevant to a vanilla kernel.

He bisected it down to e332f741a8dd ("mm, compaction: be selective about
what pageblocks to clear skip hints"). The problem is that the patch in
question was sloppy with respect to the handling of zone boundaries. In
some instances, it was possible for PFNs outside of a zone to be examined
and if those were not properly initialised or poisoned then it would
trigger the VM_BUG_ON. This patch corrects the zone boundary issues when
resetting pageblock skip hints and Mikhail reported that the bug did not
trigger after 30 hours of testing.
