Subject[PATCH v2] mm: hwpoison: disable memory error handling on 1GB hugepage
Date
Recently the following BUG was reported:

Injecting memory failure for pfn 0x3c0000 at process virtual address 0x7fe300000000
Memory failure: 0x3c0000: recovery action for huge page: Recovered
BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffff8dfcc0003000
IP: gup_pgd_range+0x1f0/0xc20
PGD 17ae72067 P4D 17ae72067 PUD 0
Oops: 0000 [#1] SMP PTI
...
CPU: 3 PID: 5467 Comm: hugetlb_1gb Not tainted 4.15.0-rc8-mm1-abc+ #3
Hardware name: QEMU Standard PC (i440FX + PIIX, 1996), BIOS 1.9.3-1.fc25 04/01/2014

You can easily reproduce this by calling madvise(MADV_HWPOISON) twice on
a 1GB hugepage. This happens because get_user_pages_fast() is not aware
of a migration entry on pud that was created in the 1st madvise() event.

I think that conversion to pud-aligned migration entry is working,
but other MM code walking over page table isn't prepared for it.
We need some time and effort to make all this work properly, so
this patch avoids the reported bug by just disabling error handling
for 1GB hugepage.

ChangeLog v1 -> v2:
- add comment about what we need to support hwpoision for pud-sized hugetlb
- use "page size > PMD_SIZE" condition instead of hstate_is_gigantic()
