Subject[bad page] memcg: another bad page at page migration (2.6.26-rc5-mm3 + patch collection)
Hi.

It seems the current -mm has been gradually stabilized,
but I encounter another bad page problem in my test(*1)
on 2.6.26-rc5-mm3 + patch collection(*2).

Compared to previous probrems fixed by the patch collection,
the frequency is law.

- 1 time in 1 hour running(1'st one was seen after 30 minutes)
- 3 times in 16 hours running(1'st one was seen after 4 hours)
- 10 times in 70 hours running(1'st one was seen after 8 hours)

All bad pages show similar message like below:

---
Bad page state in process 'switch.sh'
page:ffffe2000c8e59c0 flags:0x0200000000080018 mapping:000
0000000000000 mapcount:0 count:0
cgroup:ffff81062a817050
Trying to fix it up, but a reboot is needed

- page flags are 0x...80018, PG_uptodate/PG_dirty/PG_swapbacked,
and count/map_count/mapping are all 0(no pproblem).
- contains "cgroup:..." line. this is the cause of bad page.

So, some pages that have not been uncharged by memcg
are beeing freed(I don't mount memcg, but don't specify
"cgroup_disable=memory").
I have not found yet the path where this can happen,
and I'm digging more.


Thanks,
Daisuke Nishimura.
