Subject[RFC 0/3] mm/page_alloc: Fix pageblock_order with HUGETLB_PAGE_SIZE_VARIABLE
Date
The following warning gets triggered while trying to boot a 64K page size
without THP config kernel on arm64 platform.

This warning comes from __fragmentation_index() when the requested order
is greater than MAX_ORDER.

static int __fragmentation_index(unsigned int order,
struct contig_page_info *info)
{
unsigned long requested = 1UL << order;

if (WARN_ON_ONCE(order >= MAX_ORDER)) <===== Triggered here
return 0;

Digging it further reveals that pageblock_order has been assigned a value
which is greater than MAX_ORDER failing the above check. But why this
happened ? Because HUGETLB_PAGE_ORDER for the given config on arm64 is
greater than MAX_ORDER.

The solution involves enabling HUGETLB_PAGE_SIZE_VARIABLE which would make
pageblock_order a variable instead of constant HUGETLB_PAGE_ORDER. But that
change alone also did not really work as pageblock_order still got assigned
as HUGETLB_PAGE_ORDER in set_pageblock_order(). HUGETLB_PAGE_ORDER needs to
be less than MAX_ORDER for its appropriateness as pageblock_order otherwise
just fallback to MAX_ORDER - 1 as before. While here it also fixes a build
problem via type casting MAX_ORDER in rmem_cma_setup().

This series applies in v5.11-rc6 and has been slightly tested on arm64. But
looking for some early feedbacks particularly with respect to concerns in
subscribing HUGETLB_PAGE_SIZE_VARIABLE on a platform where the hugetlb page
size is config dependent but not really a runtime variable. Even though it
appears that HUGETLB_PAGE_SIZE_VARIABLE is used only while computing the
pageblock_order, could there be other implications ?
