mm: madvise(MADV_DODUMP): allow hugetlbfs pages
Reproducer, assuming 2M of hugetlbfs available: Hugetlbfs mounted, size=2M and option user=testuser # mount | grep ^hugetlbfs hugetlbfs on /dev/hugepages type hugetlbfs (rw,pagesize=2M,user=dan) # sysctl vm.nr_hugepages=1 vm.nr_hugepages = 1 # grep Huge /proc/meminfo AnonHugePages: 0 kB ShmemHugePages: 0 kB HugePages_Total: 1 HugePages_Free: 1 HugePages_Rsvd: 0 HugePages_Surp: 0 Hugepagesize: 2048 kB Hugetlb: 2048 kB Code: #include <sys/mman.h> #include <stddef.h> #define SIZE 2*1024*1024 int main() { void *ptr; ptr = mmap(NULL, SIZE, PROT_READ | PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE | MAP_HUGETLB | MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0); madvise(ptr, SIZE, MADV_DONTDUMP); madvise(ptr, SIZE, MADV_DODUMP); } Compile and strace: mmap(NULL, 2097152, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS|MAP_HUGETLB, -1, 0) = 0x7ff7c9200000 madvise(0x7ff7c9200000, 2097152, MADV_DONTDUMP) = 0 madvise(0x7ff7c9200000, 2097152, MADV_DODUMP) = -1 EINVAL (Invalid argument) hugetlbfs pages have VM_DONTEXPAND in the VmFlags driver pages based on author testing with analysis from Florian Weimer[1]. The inclusion of VM_DONTEXPAND into the VM_SPECIAL defination was a consequence of the large useage of VM_DONTEXPAND in device drivers. A consequence of [2] is that VM_DONTEXPAND marked pages are unable to be marked DODUMP. A user could quite legitimately madvise(MADV_DONTDUMP) their hugetlbfs memory for a while and later request that madvise(MADV_DODUMP) on the same memory. We correct this omission by allowing madvice(MADV_DODUMP) on hugetlbfs pages.
