Are these the same person?

The changelog still doesn't mention that this bug triggers a
VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(). It should do so. I did this:

: __SetPageMovable() expects its page to be locked, but z3fold.c doesn't
: lock the page. This triggers the VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(!PageLocked(page), page)
: in __SetPageMovable().
:
: Following zsmalloc.c's example we call trylock_page() and unlock_page().
: Also make z3fold_page_migrate() assert that newpage is passed in locked,
: as per the documentation.

I'll add a cc:stable to this fix.

Shakeel asked "please comment" (ie, please add a code comment), not
"please comment on". Subtle ;)

I think this will suffice:

--- a/mm/z3fold.c~mm-z3foldc-lock-z3fold-page-before-__setpagemovable-fix
+++ a/mm/z3fold.c
@@ -919,6 +919,9 @@ retry:
set_bit(PAGE_HEADLESS, &page->private);
goto headless;
}
+ /*
+ * z3fold_alloc() can be called from atomic contexts, hence the trylock
+ */
if (!WARN_ON(!trylock_page(page))) {
__SetPageMovable(page, pool->inode->i_mapping);
unlock_page(page);
However this code would be more effective if z3fold_alloc() were to be
told when it is running in non-atomic context so it can perform a
sleeping lock_page() in that case. That's an improvement to consider
for later, please.
