mm/mempool: fix a data race in mempool_free()
mempool_t pool.curr_nr could be accessed concurrently as noticed by KCSAN, BUG: KCSAN: data-race in mempool_free / remove_element write to 0xffffffffa937638c of 4 bytes by task 6359 on cpu 113: remove_element+0x4a/0x1c0 remove_element at mm/mempool.c:132 mempool_alloc+0x102/0x210 (inlined by) mempool_alloc at mm/mempool.c:399 bio_alloc_bioset+0x106/0x2c0 get_swap_bio+0x49/0x230 __swap_writepage+0x680/0xc30 swap_writepage+0x9c/0xf0 pageout+0x33e/0xae0 shrink_page_list+0x1f57/0x2870 shrink_inactive_list+0x316/0x880 shrink_lruvec+0x8dc/0x1380 shrink_node+0x317/0xd80 do_try_to_free_pages+0x1f7/0xa10 try_to_free_pages+0x26c/0x5e0 __alloc_pages_slowpath+0x458/0x1290 <snip> read to 0xffffffffa937638c of 4 bytes by interrupt on cpu 64: mempool_free+0x3e/0x150 mempool_free at mm/mempool.c:492 bio_free+0x192/0x280 bio_put+0x91/0xd0 end_swap_bio_write+0x1d8/0x280 bio_endio+0x2c2/0x5b0 dec_pending+0x22b/0x440 [dm_mod] clone_endio+0xe4/0x2c0 [dm_mod] bio_endio+0x2c2/0x5b0 blk_update_request+0x217/0x940 scsi_end_request+0x6b/0x4d0 scsi_io_completion+0xb7/0x7e0 scsi_finish_command+0x223/0x310 scsi_softirq_done+0x1d5/0x210 blk_mq_complete_request+0x224/0x250 scsi_mq_done+0xc2/0x250 pqi_raid_io_complete+0x5a/0x70 [smartpqi] pqi_irq_handler+0x150/0x1410 [smartpqi] __handle_irq_event_percpu+0x90/0x540 handle_irq_event_percpu+0x49/0xd0 handle_irq_event+0x85/0xca handle_edge_irq+0x13f/0x3e0 do_IRQ+0x86/0x190 <snip> Since the write is under pool->lock but the read is done as lockless. Even though the commit 5b990546e334 ("mempool: fix and document synchronization and memory barrier usage") introduced the smp_wmb() and smp_rmb() pair to improve the situation, it is adequate to protect it from data races which could lead to a logic bug, so fix it by adding READ_ONCE() for the read.
