Subject[PATCH 4.19 28/38] mm: hugetlb: fix a race between freeing and dissolving the page
Date
From: Muchun Song <songmuchun@bytedance.com>

commit 7ffddd499ba6122b1a07828f023d1d67629aa017 upstream.

There is a race condition between __free_huge_page()
and dissolve_free_huge_page().

CPU0: CPU1:

// page_count(page) == 1
put_page(page)
__free_huge_page(page)
dissolve_free_huge_page(page)
spin_lock(&hugetlb_lock)
// PageHuge(page) && !page_count(page)
update_and_free_page(page)
// page is freed to the buddy
spin_unlock(&hugetlb_lock)
spin_lock(&hugetlb_lock)
clear_page_huge_active(page)
enqueue_huge_page(page)
// It is wrong, the page is already freed
spin_unlock(&hugetlb_lock)

The race window is between put_page() and dissolve_free_huge_page().

We should make sure that the page is already on the free list when it is
dissolved.

As a result __free_huge_page would corrupt page(s) already in the buddy
allocator.
