Subject[PATCH v4 0/2] khugepaged: collapse pmd for pte-mapped THP
Changes v3 => v4:
1. Simplify locking for pte_mapped_thp (Oleg).
2. Improve checks for the page in collapse_pte_mapped_thp() (Oleg).
3. Move HPAGE_PMD_MASK to collapse_pte_mapped_thp() (kbuild test robot).

Changes v2 => v3:
1. Update vma/pmd check in collapse_pte_mapped_thp() (Oleg).
2. Add Acked-by from Kirill

Changes v1 => v2:
1. Call collapse_pte_mapped_thp() directly from uprobe_write_opcode();
2. Add VM_BUG_ON() for addr alignment in khugepaged_add_pte_mapped_thp()
and collapse_pte_mapped_thp().

This set is the newer version of 5/6 and 6/6 of [1]. Newer version of
1-4 of the work [2] was recently picked by Andrew.

Patch 1 enables khugepaged to handle pte-mapped THP. These THPs are left
in such state when khugepaged failed to get exclusive lock of mmap_sem.

Patch 2 leverages work in 1 for uprobe on THP. After [2], uprobe only
splits the PMD. When the uprobe is disabled, we get pte-mapped THP.
After this set, these pte-mapped THP will be collapsed as pmd-mapped.


Song Liu (2):
khugepaged: enable collapse pmd for pte-mapped THP
uprobe: collapse THP pmd after removing all uprobes
