mm/sparse: fix kernel crash with pfn_section_valid check
Fix the crash like this: BUG: Kernel NULL pointer dereference on read at 0x00000000 Faulting instruction address: 0xc000000000c3447c Oops: Kernel access of bad area, sig: 11 [#1] LE PAGE_SIZE=64K MMU=Hash SMP NR_CPUS=2048 NUMA pSeries CPU: 11 PID: 7519 Comm: lt-ndctl Not tainted 5.6.0-rc7-autotest #1 ... NIP [c000000000c3447c] vmemmap_populated+0x98/0xc0 LR [c000000000088354] vmemmap_free+0x144/0x320 Call Trace: section_deactivate+0x220/0x240 __remove_pages+0x118/0x170 arch_remove_memory+0x3c/0x150 memunmap_pages+0x1cc/0x2f0 devm_action_release+0x30/0x50 release_nodes+0x2f8/0x3e0 device_release_driver_internal+0x168/0x270 unbind_store+0x130/0x170 drv_attr_store+0x44/0x60 sysfs_kf_write+0x68/0x80 kernfs_fop_write+0x100/0x290 __vfs_write+0x3c/0x70 vfs_write+0xcc/0x240 ksys_write+0x7c/0x140 system_call+0x5c/0x68 The crash is due to NULL dereference at test_bit(idx, ms->usage->subsection_map); due to ms->usage = NULL in pfn_section_valid() With commit d41e2f3bd546 ("mm/hotplug: fix hot remove failure in SPARSEMEM|!VMEMMAP case") section_mem_map is set to NULL after depopulate_section_mem(). This was done so that pfn_page() can work correctly with kernel config that disables SPARSEMEM_VMEMMAP. With that config pfn_to_page does __section_mem_map_addr(__sec) + __pfn; where static inline struct page *__section_mem_map_addr(struct mem_section *section) { unsigned long map = section->section_mem_map; map &= SECTION_MAP_MASK; return (struct page *)map; } Now with SPASEMEM_VMEMAP enabled, mem_section->usage->subsection_map is used to check the pfn validity (pfn_valid()). Since section_deactivate release mem_section->usage if a section is fully deactivated, pfn_valid() check after a subsection_deactivate cause a kernel crash. static inline int pfn_valid(unsigned long pfn) { ... return early_section(ms) || pfn_section_valid(ms, pfn); } where static inline int pfn_section_valid(struct mem_section *ms, unsigned long pfn) { int idx = subsection_map_index(pfn); return test_bit(idx, ms->usage->subsection_map); } Avoid this by clearing SECTION_HAS_MEM_MAP when mem_section->usage is freed. For architectures like ppc64 where large pages are used for vmmemap mapping (16MB), a specific vmemmap mapping can cover multiple sections. Hence before a vmemmap mapping page can be freed, the kernel needs to make sure there are no valid sections within that mapping. Clearing the section valid bit before depopulate_section_memap enables this.
