ksm: prevent crash after write_protect_page fails
"err" needs to be left set to -EFAULT if split_huge_page succeeds. Otherwise if "err" gets clobbered with zero and write_protect_page fails, try_to_merge_one_page() will succeed instead of returning -EFAULT and then try_to_merge_with_ksm_page() will continue thinking kpage is a PageKsm when in fact it's still an anonymous page. Eventually it'll crash in page_add_anon_rmap. This has been reproduced on Fedora25 kernel but I can reproduce with upstream too. The bug was introduced in commit f765f540598a ("ksm: prepare to new THP semantics") introduced in v4.5. page:fffff67546ce1cc0 count:4 mapcount:2 mapping:ffffa094551e36e1 index:0x7f0f46673 flags: 0x2ffffc0004007c(referenced|uptodate|dirty|lru|active|swapbacked) page dumped because: VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(!PageLocked(page)) page->mem_cgroup:ffffa09674bf0000 ------------[ cut here ]------------ kernel BUG at mm/rmap.c:1222!
