Revert "mm: use early_pfn_to_nid in page_ext_init"
This reverts commit fe53ca54270a ("mm: use early_pfn_to_nid in page_ext_init"). When booting a system with "page_owner=on", start_kernel page_ext_init invoke_init_callbacks init_section_page_ext init_page_owner init_early_allocated_pages init_zones_in_node init_pages_in_zone lookup_page_ext page_to_nid The issue here is that page_to_nid() will not work since some page flags have no node information until later in page_alloc_init_late() due to DEFERRED_STRUCT_PAGE_INIT. Hence, it could trigger an out-of-bounds access with an invalid nid. UBSAN: Undefined behaviour in ./include/linux/mm.h:1104:50 index 7 is out of range for type 'zone [5]' Also, kernel will panic since flags were poisoned earlier with, CONFIG_DEBUG_VM_PGFLAGS=y CONFIG_NODE_NOT_IN_PAGE_FLAGS=n start_kernel setup_arch pagetable_init paging_init sparse_init sparse_init_nid memblock_alloc_try_nid_raw It did not handle it well in init_pages_in_zone() which ends up calling page_to_nid(). page:ffffea0004200000 is uninitialized and poisoned raw: ffffffffffffffff ffffffffffffffff ffffffffffffffff ffffffffffffffff raw: ffffffffffffffff ffffffffffffffff ffffffffffffffff ffffffffffffffff page dumped because: VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(PagePoisoned(p)) page_owner info is not active (free page?) kernel BUG at include/linux/mm.h:990! RIP: 0010:init_page_owner+0x486/0x520 This means that assumptions behind commit fe53ca54270a ("mm: use early_pfn_to_nid in page_ext_init") are incomplete. Therefore, revert the commit for now. A proper way to move the page_owner initialization to sooner is to hook into memmap initialization.
