Subject: Kernel bug with MPX?


Hi,

I've reported this internally but got directed here, hopefully
the correct forum for bugreporting.

When running the gcc.target/i386/mpx/memmove-1.c testcase
from the GCC 8 branch on MPX capable hardware the testcase
faults and the kernel log reports the following:

[1216548.787494] BUG: Bad rss-counter state mm:0000000017ce560b idx:0 
val:385
[1216548.787498] BUG: Bad rss-counter state mm:0000000017ce560b idx:1 
val:551
[1216548.787500] BUG: non-zero pgtables_bytes on freeing mm: 24576

This is on a 4.20.7 kernel but it was reproduced it with 5.0 as well.
I believe it was fine on earlier kernels though.

I've put a statically linked executable at
http://www.suse.de/~rguenther/memmove-1.exe (needs some time to sync
to the public webserver still).

Thanks,
Richard.

That looks like both file and anonymous mappings do not get torn down
properly and some memory leaks.

Not really but I haven't been following MPX development closely. I
can reproduce the issue on 5.0 kernel

BUG: Bad rss-counter state mm:00000000406bd30e idx:1 val:25591

so I guess it would be best to report upstream (Cc linux-mm@...ck.org,
linux-kernel@...r.kernel.org and dave.hansen@...el.com). Let me know if
you need any help.
