Subject: [PATCH 4.14 14/27] mm: page_mapped: dont assume compound page is huge or THP

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

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

From: Jan Stancek <jstancek@...hat.com>

commit 8ab88c7169b7fba98812ead6524b9d05bc76cf00 upstream.

LTP proc01 testcase has been observed to rarely trigger crashes
on arm64:
    page_mapped+0x78/0xb4
    stable_page_flags+0x27c/0x338
    kpageflags_read+0xfc/0x164
    proc_reg_read+0x7c/0xb8
    __vfs_read+0x58/0x178
    vfs_read+0x90/0x14c
    SyS_read+0x60/0xc0

The issue is that page_mapped() assumes that if compound page is not
huge, then it must be THP.  But if this is 'normal' compound page
(COMPOUND_PAGE_DTOR), then following loop can keep running (for
HPAGE_PMD_NR iterations) until it tries to read from memory that isn't
mapped and triggers a panic:

        for (i = 0; i < hpage_nr_pages(page); i++) {
                if (atomic_read(&page[i]._mapcount) >= 0)
                        return true;
	}

I could replicate this on x86 (v4.20-rc4-98-g60b548237fed) only
with a custom kernel module [1] which:
 - allocates compound page (PAGEC) of order 1
 - allocates 2 normal pages (COPY), which are initialized to 0xff (to
   satisfy _mapcount >= 0)
 - 2 PAGEC page structs are copied to address of first COPY page
 - second page of COPY is marked as not present
 - call to page_mapped(COPY) now triggers fault on access to 2nd COPY
   page at offset 0x30 (_mapcount)

[1] https://github.com/jstancek/reproducers/blob/master/kernel/page_mapped_crash/repro.c

Fix the loop to iterate for "1 << compound_order" pages.

Kirrill said "IIRC, sound subsystem can producuce custom mapped compound
pages".
