Subject: [PATCH 3.13 003/149] mm: include VM_MIXEDMAP flag in the VM_SPECIAL list to avoid m(un)locking

3.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Vlastimil Babka <vbabka@...e.cz>

commit 9050d7eba40b3d79551668f54e68fd6f51945ef3 upstream.

Daniel Borkmann reported a VM_BUG_ON assertion failing:

  ---[ end trace a0088dcf07ae10f2 ]---

because munlock_vma_pages_range() thinks it's unexpectedly in the middle
of a THP page.  This can be reproduced with default config since 3.11
kernels.  A reproducer can be found in the kernel's selftest directory
for networking by running ./psock_tpacket.

The problem is that an order=2 compound page (allocated by
alloc_one_pg_vec_page() is part of the munlocked VM_MIXEDMAP vma (mapped
by packet_mmap()) and mistaken for a THP page and assumed to be order=9.

The checks for THP in munlock came with commit ff6a6da60b89 ("mm:
accelerate munlock() treatment of THP pages"), i.e.  since 3.9, but did
not trigger a bug.  It just makes munlock_vma_pages_range() skip such
compound pages until the next 512-pages-aligned page, when it encounters
a head page.  This is however not a problem for vma's where mlocking has
no effect anyway, but it can distort the accounting.

Since commit 7225522bb429 ("mm: munlock: batch non-THP page isolation
and munlock+putback using pagevec") this can trigger a VM_BUG_ON in
PageTransHuge() check.

This patch fixes the issue by adding VM_MIXEDMAP flag to VM_SPECIAL, a
list of flags that make vma's non-mlockable and non-mergeable.  The
reasoning is that VM_MIXEDMAP vma's are similar to VM_PFNMAP, which is
already on the VM_SPECIAL list, and both are intended for non-LRU pages
where mlocking makes no sense anyway.  Related Lkml discussion can be
found in [2].
