Subject[v2 PATCH] mm: move_pages: return valid node id in status if the page is already on the target node
Date
Felix Abecassis reports move_pages() would return random status if the
pages are already on the target node by the below test program:

---8<---

int main(void)
{
const long node_id = 1;
const long page_size = sysconf(_SC_PAGESIZE);
const int64_t num_pages = 8;

unsigned long nodemask = 1 << node_id;
long ret = set_mempolicy(MPOL_BIND, &nodemask, sizeof(nodemask));
if (ret < 0)
return (EXIT_FAILURE);

void **pages = malloc(sizeof(void*) * num_pages);
for (int i = 0; i < num_pages; ++i) {
pages[i] = mmap(NULL, page_size, PROT_WRITE | PROT_READ,
MAP_PRIVATE | MAP_POPULATE | MAP_ANONYMOUS,
-1, 0);
if (pages[i] == MAP_FAILED)
return (EXIT_FAILURE);
}

ret = set_mempolicy(MPOL_DEFAULT, NULL, 0);
if (ret < 0)
return (EXIT_FAILURE);

int *nodes = malloc(sizeof(int) * num_pages);
int *status = malloc(sizeof(int) * num_pages);
for (int i = 0; i < num_pages; ++i) {
nodes[i] = node_id;
status[i] = 0xd0; /* simulate garbage values */
}

ret = move_pages(0, num_pages, pages, nodes, status, MPOL_MF_MOVE);
printf("move_pages: %ld\n", ret);
for (int i = 0; i < num_pages; ++i)
printf("status[%d] = %d\n", i, status[i]);
}
---8<---

Then running the program would return nonsense status values:
$ ./move_pages_bug
move_pages: 0
status[0] = 208
status[1] = 208
status[2] = 208
status[3] = 208
status[4] = 208
status[5] = 208
status[6] = 208
status[7] = 208

This is because the status is not set if the page is already on the
target node, but move_pages() should return valid status as long as it
succeeds. The valid status may be errno or node id.

We can't simply initialize status array to zero since the pages may be
not on node 0. Fix it by updating status with node id which the page is
already on. And, it looks we have to update the status inside
add_page_for_migration() since the page struct is not available outside
it.

Make add_page_for_migration() return 1 if store_status() is failed in
order to not mix up the status value since -EFAULT is also a valid
status.

v2: *Correted the return value when add_page_for_migration() returns 1.

John noticed another return value inconsistency between the implementation and
the manpage. The manpage says it should return -ENOENT if the page is already
on the target node, but it doesn't. It looks the original code didn't return
-ENOENT either, I'm not sure if this is a document issue or not. Anyway this
is another issue, once we confirm it we can fix it later.
