Subject[PATCH] mm: don't expose page to fast gup before it's ready
Date
We don't want to expose page before it's properly setup. During
page setup, we may call page_add_new_anon_rmap() which uses non-
atomic bit op. If page is exposed before it's done, we could
overwrite page flags that are set by get_user_pages_fast() or
it's callers. Here is a non-fatal scenario (there might be other
fatal problems that I didn't look into):

CPU 1 CPU1
set_pte_at() get_user_pages_fast()
page_add_new_anon_rmap() gup_pte_range()
__SetPageSwapBacked() SetPageReferenced()

Fix the problem by delaying set_pte_at() until page is ready.
