Subject[PATCH 4.15 30/64] mm: dont defer struct page initialization for Xen pv guests
Date
4.15-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Juergen Gross <jgross@suse.com>

commit 895f7b8e90200cf1a5dc313329369adf30e51f9a upstream.

Commit f7f99100d8d9 ("mm: stop zeroing memory during allocation in
vmemmap") broke Xen pv domains in some configurations, as the "Pinned"
information in struct page of early page tables could get lost.

This will lead to the kernel trying to write directly into the page
tables instead of asking the hypervisor to do so. The result is a crash
like the following:

Avoid this problem by not deferring struct page initialization when
running as Xen pv guest.

Pavel said:

: This is unique for Xen, so this particular issue won't effect other
: configurations. I am going to investigate if there is a way to
: re-enable deferred page initialization on xen guests.
