Subject[PATCH v3 0/4] arch, mm: improve robustness of direct map manipulation
Date
From: Mike Rapoport <rppt@linux.ibm.com>

Hi,

During recent discussion about KVM protected memory, David raised a concern
about usage of __kernel_map_pages() outside of DEBUG_PAGEALLOC scope [1].

Indeed, for architectures that define CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_SET_DIRECT_MAP it is
possible that __kernel_map_pages() would fail, but since this function is
void, the failure will go unnoticed.

Moreover, there's lack of consistency of __kernel_map_pages() semantics
across architectures as some guard this function with
#ifdef DEBUG_PAGEALLOC, some refuse to update the direct map if page
allocation debugging is disabled at run time and some allow modifying the
direct map regardless of DEBUG_PAGEALLOC settings.

This set straightens this out by restoring dependency of
__kernel_map_pages() on DEBUG_PAGEALLOC and updating the call sites
accordingly.

Since currently the only user of __kernel_map_pages() outside
DEBUG_PAGEALLOC, it is updated to make direct map accesses there more
explicit.

v3 changes:
* update arm64 changes to avoid regression, per Rick's comments
* fix bisectability

v2 changes:
* Rephrase patch 2 changelog to better describe the change intentions and
implications
* Move removal of kernel_map_pages() from patch 1 to patch 2, per David
