Subject[PATCH 5.15 103/128] mm, hwpoison: fix condition in free hugetlb page path
Date
From: Naoya Horiguchi <naoya.horiguchi@nec.com>

commit e37e7b0b3bd52ec4f8ab71b027bcec08f57f1b3b upstream.

When a memory error hits a tail page of a free hugepage,
__page_handle_poison() is expected to be called to isolate the error in
4kB unit, but it's not called due to the outdated if-condition in
memory_failure_hugetlb(). This loses the chance to isolate the error in
the finer unit, so it's not optimal. Drop the condition.

This "(p != head && TestSetPageHWPoison(head)" condition is based on the
old semantics of PageHWPoison on hugepage (where PG_hwpoison flag was
set on the subpage), so it's not necessray any more. By getting to set
PG_hwpoison on head page for hugepages, concurrent error events on
different subpages in a single hugepage can be prevented by
TestSetPageHWPoison(head) at the beginning of memory_failure_hugetlb().
So dropping the condition should not reopen the race window originally
mentioned in commit b985194c8c0a ("hwpoison, hugetlb:
lock_page/unlock_page does not match for handling a free hugepage")
