Subject[PATCH v3 0/8] Create 'old' ptes for faultaround mappings on arm64 with hardware access flag
Date
Hi again folks,

This is the third version of the patches I previously posted here:

v1: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20201209163950.8494-1-will@kernel.org
v2: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20210108171517.5290-1-will@kernel.org

The patches allow architectures to opt-in at runtime for faultaround
mappings to be created as 'old' instead of 'young'. Although there have
been previous attempts at this, they failed either because the decision
was deferred to userspace [1] or because it was done unconditionally and
shown to regress benchmarks for particular architectures [2].

Minor changes since v2 include:

* Update commit messages
* Remove repeated word 'from from' in a comment
* Restore 'vmf->flags' in filemap_map_pages()

The major additions are in the five RFC patches at the end of the
series, which attempt to implement a suggestion from Linus to split up
'struct vm_fault', clearly separating the mutable and immutable fields
in the data structure. I used Coccinelle to do most of the mechanical
work, but I also ran into some tricky problems along the way:

1. 'vmf->flags' is modified on the '->page_mkwrite()' path so I couldn't
find a satisfactory way to move it to the new const structure. I toyed
with getting rid of FAULT_FLAG_[MK]WRITE completely and just tracking
these as bools, but there's also a weird piece of code in
vmw_bo_vm_mkwrite() which modifies FAULT_FLAG_ALLOW_RETRY, so I gave
up and left the 'flags' field alone.

2. I had to perform terrifying surgery on __collapse_huge_page_swapin()
and, in doing so, I'm a bit wary about the initialisation of 'pgoff',
as it isn't updated along with the address (this matches the old code).

3. vmf_insert_pfn_pmd() and friends take both a 'struct vm_fault' _and_
a 'bool write'. I have left them alone, but that FAULT_FLAG_WRITE is
causing trouble again.

4. Turns out 'struct vm_fault' is popular, so the diffstat is bloody
massive.

Anyway, be good to hear any thoughts on this lot, particular with regards
to my comments above. I've also pushed the series here:

Cheers

Kirill A. Shutemov (1):
mm: Cleanup faultaround and finish_fault() codepaths

Will Deacon (7):
mm: Allow architectures to request 'old' entries when prefaulting
arm64: mm: Implement arch_wants_old_prefaulted_pte()
mm: Separate fault info out of 'struct vm_fault'
mm: Pass 'address' to map to do_set_pte() and drop FAULT_FLAG_PREFAULT
mm: Avoid modifying vmf.info.address in __collapse_huge_page_swapin()
mm: Use static initialisers for 'info' field of 'struct vm_fault'
mm: Mark 'info' field of 'struct vm_fault' as 'const'
