ARC: mm: don't loose PTE_SPECIAL in pte_modify()
[ Upstream commit 3925a16ae980c79d1a8fd182d7f9487da1edd4dc ] LTP madvise05 was generating mm splat | [ARCLinux]# /sd/ltp/testcases/bin/madvise05 | BUG: Bad page map in process madvise05 pte:80e08211 pmd:9f7d4000 | page:9fdcfc90 count:1 mapcount:-1 mapping: (null) index:0x0 flags: 0x404(referenced|reserved) | page dumped because: bad pte | addr:200b8000 vm_flags:00000070 anon_vma: (null) mapping: (null) index:1005c | file: (null) fault: (null) mmap: (null) readpage: (null) | CPU: 2 PID: 6707 Comm: madvise05 And for newer kernels, the system was rendered unusable afterwards. The problem was mprotect->pte_modify() clearing PTE_SPECIAL (which is set to identify the special zero page wired to the pte). When pte was finally unmapped, special casing for zero page was not done, and instead it was treated as a "normal" page, tripping on the map counts etc. This fixes ARC STAR 9001053308 Cc: <stable@vger.kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Vineet Gupta <vgupta@synopsys.com> Signed-off-by: Sasha Levin <alexander.levin@verizon.com>
