mm, thp: fix infinite loop on memcg OOM
Masayoshi Mizuma reported a bug with the hang of an application under the memcg limit. It happens on write-protection fault to huge zero page If we successfully allocate a huge page to replace zero page but hit the memcg limit we need to split the zero page with split_huge_page_pmd() and fallback to small pages. The other part of the problem is that VM_FAULT_OOM has special meaning in do_huge_pmd_wp_page() context. __handle_mm_fault() expects the page to be split if it sees VM_FAULT_OOM and it will will retry page fault handling. This causes an infinite loop if the page was not split. do_huge_pmd_wp_zero_page_fallback() can return VM_FAULT_OOM if it failed to allocate one small page, so fallback to small pages will not help. The solution for this part is to replace VM_FAULT_OOM with VM_FAULT_FALLBACK is fallback required. Signed-off-by: Kirill A.
