tmpfs: fix race between umount and swapoff
commit 778dd893ae785c5fd505dac30b5fc40aae188bf1 upstream. The use of igrab() in swapoff's shmem_unuse_inode() is just as vulnerable to umount as that in shmem_writepage(). Fix this instance by extending the protection of shmem_swaplist_mutex right across shmem_unuse_inode(): while it's on the list, the inode cannot be evicted (and the filesystem cannot be unmounted) without shmem_evict_inode() taking that mutex to remove it from the list. But since shmem_writepage() might take that mutex, we should avoid making memory allocations or memcg charges while holding it: prepare them at the outer level in shmem_unuse(). When mem_cgroup_cache_charge() was originally placed, we didn't know until that point that the page from swap was actually a shmem page; but nowadays it's noted in the swap_map, so we're safe to charge upfront. For the radix_tree, do as is done in shmem_getpage(): preload upfront, but don't pin to the cpu; so we make a habit of refreshing the node pool, but might dip into GFP_NOWAIT reserves on occasion if subsequently preempted. With the allocation and charge moved out from shmem_unuse_inode(), we can also hold index map and info->lock over from finding the entry.
