mm: softdirty: enable write notifications on VMAs after VM_SOFTDIRTY cleared
For VMAs that don't want write notifications, PTEs created for read faults have their write bit set. If the read fault happens after VM_SOFTDIRTY is cleared, then the PTE's softdirty bit will remain clear after subsequent writes. Here's a simple code snippet to demonstrate the bug: char* m = mmap(NULL, getpagesize(), PROT_READ | PROT_WRITE, MAP_ANONYMOUS | MAP_SHARED, -1, 0); system("echo 4 > /proc/$PPID/clear_refs"); /* clear VM_SOFTDIRTY */ assert(*m == '\0'); /* new PTE allows write access */ assert(!soft_dirty(x)); *m = 'x'; /* should dirty the page */ assert(soft_dirty(x)); /* fails */ With this patch, write notifications are enabled when VM_SOFTDIRTY is cleared. Furthermore, to avoid unnecessary faults, write notifications are disabled when VM_SOFTDIRTY is set. As a side effect of enabling and disabling write notifications with care, this patch fixes a bug in mprotect where vm_page_prot bits set by drivers were zapped on mprotect. An analogous bug was fixed in mmap by commit c9d0bf241451 ("mm: uncached vma support with writenotify").
