mm/compaction: break out of loop on !PageBuddy in isolate_freepages_block
We received several reports of bad page state when freeing CMA pages previously allocated with alloc_contig_range: BUG: Bad page state in process Binder_A pfn:63202 page:d21130b0 count:0 mapcount:1 mapping: (null) index:0x7dfbf page flags: 0x40080068(uptodate|lru|active|swapbacked) Based on the page state, it looks like the page was still in use. The page flags do not make sense for the use case though. Further debugging showed that despite alloc_contig_range returning success, at least one page in the range still remained in the buddy allocator. There is an issue with isolate_freepages_block. In strict mode (which CMA uses), if any pages in the range cannot be isolated, isolate_freepages_block should return failure 0. The current check keeps track of the total number of isolated pages and compares against the size of the range: if (strict && nr_strict_required > total_isolated) total_isolated = 0; After taking the zone lock, if one of the pages in the range is not in the buddy allocator, we continue through the loop and do not increment total_isolated. If in the last iteration of the loop we isolate more than one page (e.g. last page needed is a higher order page), the check for total_isolated may pass and we fail to detect that a page was skipped. The fix is to bail out if the loop immediately if we are in strict mode. There's no benfit to continuing anyway since we need all pages to be isolated. Additionally, drop the error checking based on nr_strict_required and just check the pfn ranges. This matches with what isolate_freepages_range does.
