Subject: [PATCH 3.13 051/259] mm: page_alloc: fix CMA area initialisation when pageblock > MAX_ORDER

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

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

From: Michal Nazarewicz <mina86@...a86.com>

commit dc78327c0ea7da5186d8cbc1647bd6088c5c9fa5 upstream.

With a kernel configured with ARM64_64K_PAGES && !TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE,
the following is triggered at early boot:

  SMP: Total of 8 processors activated.
  devtmpfs: initialized
  Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000008
  pgd = fffffe0000050000
  [00000008] *pgd=00000043fba00003, *pmd=00000043fba00003, *pte=00e0000078010407
  Internal error: Oops: 96000006 [#1] SMP
  Modules linked in:
  CPU: 0 PID: 1 Comm: swapper/0 Not tainted 3.15.0-rc864k+ #44
  task: fffffe03bc040000 ti: fffffe03bc080000 task.ti: fffffe03bc080000
  PC is at __list_add+0x10/0xd4
  LR is at free_one_page+0x270/0x638
  ...
  Call trace:
    __list_add+0x10/0xd4
    free_one_page+0x26c/0x638
    __free_pages_ok.part.52+0x84/0xbc
    __free_pages+0x74/0xbc
    init_cma_reserved_pageblock+0xe8/0x104
    cma_init_reserved_areas+0x190/0x1e4
    do_one_initcall+0xc4/0x154
    kernel_init_freeable+0x204/0x2a8
    kernel_init+0xc/0xd4

This happens because init_cma_reserved_pageblock() calls
__free_one_page() with pageblock_order as page order but it is bigger
than MAX_ORDER.  This in turn causes accesses past zone->free_list[].

Fix the problem by changing init_cma_reserved_pageblock() such that it
splits pageblock into individual MAX_ORDER pages if pageblock is bigger
than a MAX_ORDER page.

In cases where !CONFIG_HUGETLB_PAGE_SIZE_VARIABLE, which is all
architectures expect for ia64, powerpc and tile at the moment, the
“pageblock_order > MAX_ORDER” condition will be optimised out since both
sides of the operator are constants.  In cases where pageblock size is
variable, the performance degradation should not be significant anyway
since init_cma_reserved_pageblock() is called only at boot time at most
MAX_CMA_AREAS times which by default is eight.
