Subject[v3 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.

v3: * Adopted the suggestion from Michal.
v2: * Correted the return value when add_page_for_migration() returns 1.
