thp: fix MADV_DONTNEED vs. MADV_FREE race
Both MADV_DONTNEED and MADV_FREE handled with down_read(mmap_sem). It's critical to not clear pmd intermittently while handling MADV_FREE to avoid race with MADV_DONTNEED: CPU0: CPU1: madvise_free_huge_pmd() pmdp_huge_get_and_clear_full() madvise_dontneed() zap_pmd_range() pmd_trans_huge(*pmd) == 0 (without ptl) // skip the pmd set_pmd_at(); // pmd is re-established It results in MADV_DONTNEED skipping the pmd, leaving it not cleared. It violates MADV_DONTNEED interface and can result is userspace misbehaviour. Basically it's the same race as with numa balancing in change_huge_pmd(), but a bit simpler to mitigate: we don't need to preserve dirty/young flags here due to MADV_FREE functionality.
