Fix sys_remap_file_pages BUG at highmem.c:15!
Gurudas Pai reports kernel BUG at arch/i386/mm/highmem.c:15! below sys_remap_file_pages, while running Oracle database test on x86 in 6GB RAM: kunmap thinks we're in_interrupt because the preempt count has wrapped. That's because __do_fault expected to unmap page_table, but one of its two callers do_nonlinear_fault already unmapped it: let do_linear_fault unmap it first too, and then there's no need to pass the page_table arg down. Why have we been so slow to notice this? Probably through forgetting that the mapping_cap_account_dirty test means that sys_remap_file_pages nowadays only goes the full nonlinear vma route on a few memory-backed filesystems like ramfs, tmpfs and hugetlbfs. [ It also depends on CONFIG_HIGHPTE, so it becomes even harder to trigger in practice. Many who have need of large memory have probably migrated to x86-64..
