Subject: [122/272] mm: migration: use rcu_dereference_protected when dereferencing the radix tree slot during file page migration

2.6.37-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Mel Gorman <mel@....ul.ie>

commit 29c1f677d424e8c5683a837fc4f03fc9f19201d7 upstream.

migrate_pages() -> unmap_and_move() only calls rcu_read_lock() for
anonymous pages, as introduced by git commit
989f89c57e6361e7d16fbd9572b5da7d313b073d ("fix rcu_read_lock() in page
migraton").  The point of the RCU protection there is part of getting a
stable reference to anon_vma and is only held for anon pages as file pages
are locked which is sufficient protection against freeing.

However, while a file page's mapping is being migrated, the radix tree is
double checked to ensure it is the expected page.  This uses
radix_tree_deref_slot() -> rcu_dereference() without the RCU lock held
triggering the following warning.

This patch introduces radix_tree_deref_slot_protected() which calls
rcu_dereference_protected().  Users of it must pass in the
mapping->tree_lock that is protecting this dereference.  Holding the tree
lock protects against parallel updaters of the radix tree meaning that
rcu_dereference_protected is allowable.
