mm: workingset: fix crash in shadow node shrinker caused by replace_page_cache_page()
Antonio reports the following crash when using fuse under memory pressure: kernel BUG at /build/linux-a2WvEb/linux-4.4.0/mm/workingset.c:346! invalid opcode: 0000 [#1] SMP Modules linked in: all of them CPU: 2 PID: 63 Comm: kswapd0 Not tainted 4.4.0-36-generic #55-Ubuntu Hardware name: System manufacturer System Product Name/P8H67-M PRO, BIOS 3904 04/27/2013 task: ffff88040cae6040 ti: ffff880407488000 task.ti: ffff880407488000 RIP: shadow_lru_isolate+0x181/0x190 Call Trace: __list_lru_walk_one.isra.3+0x8f/0x130 list_lru_walk_one+0x23/0x30 scan_shadow_nodes+0x34/0x50 shrink_slab.part.40+0x1ed/0x3d0 shrink_zone+0x2ca/0x2e0 kswapd+0x51e/0x990 kthread+0xd8/0xf0 ret_from_fork+0x3f/0x70 which corresponds to the following sanity check in the shadow node tracking: BUG_ON(node->count & RADIX_TREE_COUNT_MASK); The workingset code tracks radix tree nodes that exclusively contain shadow entries of evicted pages in them, and this (somewhat obscure) line checks whether there are real pages left that would interfere with reclaim of the radix tree node under memory pressure. While discussing ways how fuse might sneak pages into the radix tree past the workingset code, Miklos pointed to replace_page_cache_page(), and indeed there is a problem there: it properly accounts for the old page being removed - __delete_from_page_cache() does that - but then does a raw raw radix_tree_insert(), not accounting for the replacement page. Eventually the page count bits in node->count underflow while leaving the node incorrectly linked to the shadow node LRU. To address this, make sure replace_page_cache_page() uses the tracked page insertion code, page_cache_tree_insert(). This fixes the page accounting and makes sure page-containing nodes are properly unlinked from the shadow node LRU again. Also, make the sanity checks a bit less obscure by using the helpers for checking the number of pages and shadows in a radix tree node.
