Subject[PATCH 4.4 006/132] mm/ksm.c: dont WARN if page is still mapped in remove_stable_node()
Date
From: Andrey Ryabinin <aryabinin@virtuozzo.com>

commit 9a63236f1ad82d71a98aa80320b6cb618fb32f44 upstream.

It's possible to hit the WARN_ON_ONCE(page_mapped(page)) in
remove_stable_node() when it races with __mmput() and squeezes in
between ksm_exit() and exit_mmap().

WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 3295 at mm/ksm.c:888 remove_stable_node+0x10c/0x150

Call Trace:
remove_all_stable_nodes+0x12b/0x330
run_store+0x4ef/0x7b0
kernfs_fop_write+0x200/0x420
vfs_write+0x154/0x450
ksys_write+0xf9/0x1d0
do_syscall_64+0x99/0x510
entry_SYSCALL_64_after_hwframe+0x49/0xbe

Remove the warning as there is nothing scary going on.
