      HWPOISON: Clean up memory_failure() vs. __memory_failure() · cd42f4a3
      Tony Luck authored
      There is only one caller of memory_failure(), all other users call
      __memory_failure() and pass in the flags argument explicitly. The
      lone user of memory_failure() will soon need to pass flags too.
      Add flags argument to the callsite in mce.c. Delete the old memory_failure()
      function, and then rename __memory_failure() without the leading "__".
      Provide clearer message when action optional memory errors are ignored.

      HWPOISON: Add soft page offline support · facb6011
      Andi Kleen authored
      This is a simpler, gentler variant of memory_failure() for soft page
      offlining controlled from user space.  It doesn't kill anything, just
      tries to invalidate and if that doesn't work migrate the
      page away.
      This is useful for predictive failure analysis, where a page has
      a high rate of corrected errors, but hasn't gone bad yet. Instead
      it can be offlined early and avoided.
      The offlining is controlled from sysfs, including a new generic
      entry point for hard page offlining for symmetry too.
      We use the page isolate facility to prevent re-allocation
      race. Normally this is only used by memory hotplug. To avoid
      races with memory allocation I am using lock_system_sleep().
      This avoids the situation where memory hotplug is about
      to isolate a page range and then hwpoison undoes that work.
      This is a big hammer currently, but the simplest solution
      When the page is not free or LRU we try to free pages
      from slab and other caches. The slab freeing is currently
      quite dumb and does not try to focus on the specific slab
      cache which might own the page. This could be potentially
      improved later.
      Thanks to Fengguang Wu and Haicheng Li for some fixes.

      HWPOISON: add an interface to switch off/on all the page filters · 1bfe5feb
      Haicheng Li authored
      In some use cases, user doesn't need extra filtering. E.g. user program
      can inject errors through madvise syscall to its own pages, however it
      might not know what the page state exactly is or which inode the page
      belongs to.
      So introduce an one-off interface "corrupt-filter-enable".
      Echo 0 to switch off page filters, and echo 1 to switch on the filters.

      HWPOISON: add memory cgroup filter · 4fd466eb
      Andi Kleen authored
      The hwpoison test suite need to inject hwpoison to a collection of
      selected task pages, and must not touch pages not owned by them and
      thus kill important system processes such as init. (But it's OK to
      mis-hwpoison free/unowned pages as well as shared clean pages.
      Mis-hwpoison of shared dirty pages will kill all tasks, so the test
      suite will target all or non of such tasks in the first place.)
      The memory cgroup serves this purpose well. We can put the target
      processes under the control of a memory cgroup, and tell the hwpoison
      injection code to only kill pages associated with some active memory
      The prerequisite for doing hwpoison stress tests with mem_cgroup is,
      the mem_cgroup code tracks task pages _accurately_ (unless page is
      locked).  Which we believe is/should be true.
      The benefits are simplification of hwpoison injector code. Also the
      mem_cgroup code will automatically be tested by hwpoison test cases.
      The alternative interfaces pin-pfn/unpin-pfn can also delegate the
      (process and page flags) filtering functions reliably to user space.
      However prototype implementation shows that this scheme adds more
      complexity than we wanted.
      Example test case:
      	mkdir /cgroup/hwpoison
      	usemem -m 100 -s 1000 &
      	echo `jobs -p` > /cgroup/hwpoison/tasks
      	memcg_ino=$(ls -id /cgroup/hwpoison | cut -f1 -d' ')
      	echo $memcg_ino > /debug/hwpoison/corrupt-filter-memcg
      	page-types -p `pidof init`   --hwpoison  # shall do nothing
      	page-types -p `pidof usemem` --hwpoison  # poison its pages

      HWPOISON: add page flags filter · 478c5ffc
      Wu Fengguang authored
      When specified, only poison pages if ((page_flags & mask) == value).
      -       corrupt-filter-flags-mask
      -       corrupt-filter-flags-value
      This allows stress testing of many kinds of pages.
      Strictly speaking, the buddy pages requires taking zone lock, to avoid
      setting PG_hwpoison on a "was buddy but now allocated to someone" page.
      However we can just do nothing because we set PG_locked in the beginning,
      this prevents the page allocator from allocating it to someone. (It will
      BUG() on the unexpected PG_locked, which is fine for hwpoison testing.)

      HWPOISON: limit hwpoison injector to known page types · 31d3d348
      Wu Fengguang authored
      __memory_failure()'s workflow is
      	set PG_hwpoison
      	unset PG_hwpoison if didn't pass hwpoison filter
      That could kill unrelated process if it happens to page fault on the
      page with the (temporary) PG_hwpoison. The race should be big enough to
      appear in stress tests.
      Fix it by grabbing the page and checking filter at inject time.  This
      also avoids the very noisy "Injecting memory failure..." messages.
      - we don't touch madvise() based injection, because the filters are
        generally not necessary for it.
      - if we want to apply the filters to h/w aided injection, we'd better to
        rearrange the logic in __memory_failure() instead of this patch.

      HWPOISON: add fs/device filters · 7c116f2b
      Wu Fengguang authored
      Filesystem data/metadata present the most tricky-to-isolate pages.
      It requires careful code review and stress testing to get them right.
      The fs/device filter helps to target the stress tests to some specific
      filesystem pages. The filter condition is block device's major/minor
              - corrupt-filter-dev-major
              - corrupt-filter-dev-minor
      When specified (non -1), only page cache pages that belong to that
      device will be poisoned.
      The filters are checked reliably on the locked and refcounted page.

      HWPOISON: Add unpoisoning support · 847ce401
      Wu Fengguang authored
      The unpoisoning interface is useful for stress testing tools to
      reclaim poisoned pages (to prevent OOM)
      There is no hardware level unpoisioning, so this
      cannot be used for real memory errors, only for software injected errors.
      Note that it may leak pages silently - those who have been removed from
      LRU cache, but not isolated from page cache/swap cache at hwpoison time.
      Especially the stress test of dirty swap cache pages shall reboot system
      before exhausting memory.
