Subject[PATCH 3.13 149/162] mm: free compound page with correct order
Date
3.13.11.11 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Yu Zhao <yuzhao@google.com>

commit 5ddacbe92b806cd5b4f8f154e8e46ac267fff55c upstream.

Compound page should be freed by put_page() or free_pages() with correct
order. Not doing so will cause tail pages leaked.

The compound order can be obtained by compound_order() or use
HPAGE_PMD_ORDER in our case. Some people would argue the latter is
faster but I prefer the former which is more general.

This bug was observed not just on our servers (the worst case we saw is
11G leaked on a 48G machine) but also on our workstations running Ubuntu
based distro.

$ cat /proc/vmstat | grep thp_zero_page_alloc
thp_zero_page_alloc 55
thp_zero_page_alloc_failed 0

This means there is (thp_zero_page_alloc - 1) * (2M - 4K) memory leaked.

Fixes: 97ae17497e99 ("thp: implement refcounting for huge zero page")
