Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.14 30/64] slub: fix sysfs duplicate filename
 creation when slub_debug=O

From: Miles Chen <miles.chen@...iatek.com>

[ Upstream commit 11066386efa692f77171484c32ea30f6e5a0d729 ]

When slub_debug=O is set.  It is possible to clear debug flags for an
"unmergeable" slab cache in kmem_cache_open().  It makes the "unmergeable"
cache became "mergeable" in sysfs_slab_add().

These caches will generate their "unique IDs" by create_unique_id(), but
it is possible to create identical unique IDs.  In my experiment,
sgpool-128, names_cache, biovec-256 generate the same ID ":Ft-0004096" and
the kernel reports "sysfs: cannot create duplicate filename
'/kernel/slab/:Ft-0004096'".

To repeat my experiment, set disable_higher_order_debug=1,
CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG_ON=y in kernel-4.14.

Fix this issue by setting unmergeable=1 if slub_debug=O and the the
default slub_debug contains any no-merge flags.

call path:
kmem_cache_create()
  __kmem_cache_alias()	-> we set SLAB_NEVER_MERGE flags here
  create_cache()
    __kmem_cache_create()
      kmem_cache_open()	-> clear DEBUG_METADATA_FLAGS
      sysfs_slab_add()	-> the slab cache is mergeable now

  sysfs: cannot create duplicate filename '/kernel/slab/:Ft-0004096'
