mm: include VM_MIXEDMAP flag in the VM_SPECIAL list to avoid m(un)locking
Daniel Borkmann reported a VM_BUG_ON assertion failing: ------------[ cut here ]------------ kernel BUG at mm/mlock.c:528! invalid opcode: 0000 [#1] SMP Modules linked in: ccm arc4 iwldvm [...] video CPU: 3 PID: 2266 Comm: netsniff-ng Not tainted 3.14.0-rc2+ #8 Hardware name: LENOVO 2429BP3/2429BP3, BIOS G4ET37WW (1.12 ) 05/29/2012 task: ffff8801f87f9820 ti: ffff88002cb44000 task.ti: ffff88002cb44000 RIP: 0010:[<ffffffff81171ad0>] [<ffffffff81171ad0>] munlock_vma_pages_range+0x2e0/0x2f0 Call Trace: do_munmap+0x18f/0x3b0 vm_munmap+0x41/0x60 SyS_munmap+0x22/0x30 system_call_fastpath+0x1a/0x1f RIP munlock_vma_pages_range+0x2e0/0x2f0 ---[ end trace a0088dcf07ae10f2 ]--- because munlock_vma_pages_range() thinks it's unexpectedly in the middle of a THP page. This can be reproduced with default config since 3.11 kernels. A reproducer can be found in the kernel's selftest directory for networking by running ./psock_tpacket. The problem is that an order=2 compound page (allocated by alloc_one_pg_vec_page() is part of the munlocked VM_MIXEDMAP vma (mapped by packet_mmap()) and mistaken for a THP page and assumed to be order=9. The checks for THP in munlock came with commit ff6a6da60b89 ("mm: accelerate munlock() treatment of THP pages"), i.e. since 3.9, but did not trigger a bug. It just makes munlock_vma_pages_range() skip such compound pages until the next 512-pages-aligned page, when it encounters a head page. This is however not a problem for vma's where mlocking has no effect anyway, but it can distort the accounting. Since commit 7225522bb429 ("mm: munlock: batch non-THP page isolation and munlock+putback using pagevec") this can trigger a VM_BUG_ON in PageTransHuge() check. This patch fixes the issue by adding VM_MIXEDMAP flag to VM_SPECIAL, a list of flags that make vma's non-mlockable and non-mergeable. The reasoning is that VM_MIXEDMAP vma's are similar to VM_PFNMAP, which is already on the VM_SPECIAL list, and both are intended for non-LRU pages where mlocking makes no sense anyway.
