Subject[PATCH v4 00/10] mm: Page fault enhancements
Date
This is the 4th version of the PF enhancement series on signal
handlings and fault retries. This new version does not change
existing patches in v3 but added two more patches to address the
current gup issue on not responding to SIGKILL. A 3rd new patch is
also added to allow handle_userfaultfd to respect FAULT_FLAG_KILLABLE
though should have no functional change when with the two new patches
above.

I would really appreciate any review comments for the series,
especially for the first two patches which IMHO are even not related
to this patchset and they should either cleanup or fix things.

v4:
- use lore.kernel.org for all the links in commit messages [Kirill]
- one more patch ("mm/gup: Fix __get_user_pages() on fault retry of
hugetlb") to fix hugetlb path on fault retry
- one more patch ("mm/gup: Allow to react to fatal signals") to:
- use down_read_killable() properly [Linus]
- pass in FAULT_FLAG_KILLABLE for all GUP [Linus]
- one more patch ("mm/userfaultfd: Honor FAULT_FLAG_KILLABLE in fault
path") to let handle_userfaultfd() respect FAULT_FLAG_KILLABLE.
Should have no functional change after previous two new patches.

v3:
- check fatal signals in __get_user_page_locked() [Linus]
- add r-bs

v2:
- resent previous version, rebase only

=============== v1 cover letter ==================

This series is split out of userfaultfd-wp series to only cover the
general page fault changes, since it seems to make sense itself.

Basically it does two things:

(a) Allows the page fault handlers to be more interactive on not
only SIGKILL, but also the rest of userspace signals (especially
for user-mode faults), and,

(b) Allows the page fault retry (VM_FAULT_RETRY) to happen for more
than once.

I'm keeping the CC list as in uffd-wp v5, hopefully I'm not sending
too much spams...

And, instead of writting again the cover letter, I'm just copy-pasting
my previous link here which has more details on why we do this:

https://patchwork.kernel.org/cover/10691991/

The major change from that latest version should be that we introduced
a new page fault flag FAULT_FLAG_INTERRUPTIBLE as suggested by Linus
[1] to represents that we would like the fault handler to respond to
non-fatal signals. Also, we're more careful now on when to do the
immediate return of the page fault for such signals. For example, now
we'll only check against signal_pending() for user-mode page faults
and we keep the kernel-mode page fault patch untouched for it. More
information can be found in separate patches.

The patchset is only lightly tested on x86.

All comments are greatly welcomed. Thanks,
