Subject[PATCH 3/3] mm/mincore: provide mapped status when cached status is not allowed
Date
After "mm/mincore: make mincore() more conservative" we sometimes restrict the
information about page cache residency, which we have to do without breaking
existing userspace, if possible. We thus fake the resulting values as 1, which
should be safer than faking them as 0, as there might theoretically exist code
that would try to fault in the page(s) until mincore() returns 1.

Faking 1 however means that such code would not fault in a page even if it was
not in page cache, with unwanted performance implications. We can improve the
situation by revisting the approach of 574823bfab82 ("Change mincore() to count
"mapped" pages rather than "cached" pages") but only applying it to cases where
page cache residency check is restricted. Thus mincore() will return 0 for an
unmapped page (which may or may not be resident in a pagecache), and 1 after
the process faults it in.

One potential downside is that mincore() will be again able to recognize when a
previously mapped page was reclaimed. While that might be useful for some
attack scenarios, it's not as crucial as recognizing that somebody else faulted
the page in, and there are also other ways to recognize reclaimed pages anyway.
