hugetlbfs: add swap entry check in follow_hugetlb_page()
With applying the previous patch "hugetlbfs: stop setting VM_DONTDUMP in initializing vma(VM_HUGETLB)" to reenable hugepage coredump, if a memory error happens on a hugepage and the affected processes try to access the error hugepage, we hit VM_BUG_ON(atomic_read(&page->_count) <= 0) in get_page(). The reason for this bug is that coredump-related code doesn't recognise "hugepage hwpoison entry" with which a pmd entry is replaced when a memory error occurs on a hugepage. In other words, physical address information is stored in different bit layout between hugepage hwpoison entry and pmd entry, so follow_hugetlb_page() which is called in get_dump_page() returns a wrong page from a given address. The expected behavior is like this: absent is_swap_pte FOLL_DUMP Expected behavior ------------------------------------------------------------------- true false false hugetlb_fault false true false hugetlb_fault false false false return page true false true skip page (to avoid allocation) false true true hugetlb_fault false false true return page With this patch, we can call hugetlb_fault() and take proper actions (we wait for migration entries, fail with VM_FAULT_HWPOISON_LARGE for hwpoisoned entries,) and as the result we can dump all hugepages except for hwpoisoned ones.
