Subject[PATCH v3 8/9] mm, hwpoison: skip raw hwpoison page in freeing 1GB hugepage
Date
From: Naoya Horiguchi <naoya.horiguchi@nec.com>

Currently if memory_failure() (modified to remove blocking code with
subsequent patch) is called on a page in some 1GB hugepage, memory error
handling fails and the raw error page gets into leaked state. The impact
is small in production systems (just leaked single 4kB page), but this
limits the testability because unpoison doesn't work for it.
We can no longer create 1GB hugepage on the 1GB physical address range
with such leaked pages, that's not useful when testing on small systems.

When a hwpoison page in a 1GB hugepage is handled, it's caught by the
PageHWPoison check in free_pages_prepare() because the 1GB hugepage is
broken down into raw error pages before coming to this point:

if (unlikely(PageHWPoison(page)) && !order) {
...
return false;
}

Then, the page is not sent to buddy and the page refcount is left 0.

Originally this check is supposed to work when the error page is freed from
page_handle_poison() (that is called from soft-offline), but now we are
opening another path to call it, so the callers of __page_handle_poison()
need to handle the case by considering the return value 0 as success. Then
page refcount for hwpoison is properly incremented so unpoison works.
