Subject[PATCH 4.14 064/126] mm, thp: fix defrag setting if newline is not used
Date
From: David Rientjes <rientjes@google.com>

commit f42f25526502d851d0e3ca1e46297da8aafce8a7 upstream.

If thp defrag setting "defer" is used and a newline is *not* used when
writing to the sysfs file, this is interpreted as the "defer+madvise"
option.

This is because we do prefix matching and if five characters are written
without a newline, the current code ends up comparing to the first five
bytes of the "defer+madvise" option and using that instead.

Use the more appropriate sysfs_streq() that handles the trailing newline
for us. Since this doubles as a nice cleanup, do it in enabled_store()
as well.

The current implementation relies on prefix matching: the number of
bytes compared is either the number of bytes written or the length of
the option being compared. With a newline, "defer\n" does not match
"defer+"madvise"; without a newline, however, "defer" is considered to
match "defer+madvise" (prefix matching is only comparing the first five
bytes). End result is that writing "defer" is broken unless it has an
additional trailing character.

This means that writing "madv" in the past would match and set
"madvise". With strict checking, that no longer is the case but it is
unlikely anybody is currently doing this.
