aio: Make it possible to remap aio ring
There are actually two issues this patch addresses. Let me start with the one I tried to solve in the beginning. So, in the checkpoint-restore project (criu) we try to dump tasks' state and restore one back exactly as it was. One of the tasks' state bits is rings set up with io_setup() call. There's (almost) no problems in dumping them, there's a problem restoring them -- if I dump a task with aio ring originally mapped at address A, I want to restore one back at exactly the same address A. Unfortunately, the io_setup() does not allow for that -- it mmaps the ring at whatever place mm finds appropriate (it calls do_mmap_pgoff() with zero address and without the MAP_FIXED flag). To make restore possible I'm going to mremap() the freshly created ring into the address A (under which it was seen before dump). The problem is that the ring's virtual address is passed back to the user-space as the context ID and this ID is then used as search key by all the other io_foo() calls. Reworking this ID to be just some integer doesn't seem to work, as this value is already used by libaio as a pointer using which this library accesses memory for aio meta-data. So, to make restore work we need to make sure that a) ring is mapped at desired virtual address b) kioctx->user_id matches this value Having said that, the patch makes mremap() on aio region update the kioctx's user_id and mmap_base values. Here appears the 2nd issue I mentioned in the beginning of this mail. If (regardless of the C/R dances I do) someone creates an io context with io_setup(), then mremap()-s the ring and then destroys the context, the kill_ioctx() routine will call munmap() on wrong (old) address. This will result in a) aio ring remaining in memory and b) some other vma get unexpectedly unmapped. What do you think?
