SubjectRe: [PATCH 22/31] sched, numa, mm: Implement THP migration

Serialize against what?

Without the migration PTE dance it does mean that parallel faults could
attempt to migrate at the same time and do a lot of busy work. Is this
what the page lock is meant to serialise against?

Either way, this feels like an optimisation that should have appeared later
in the series because if there is any bug due to this patch it'll be a bitch
to debug. The bisection will point to where schednuma finally comes into play
and not this patch where the actual bug is (if any, maybe this is perfect).

Also, I'm slightly confused by this comment because we have this

page = pmd_page(entry);
if (page) {
VM_BUG_ON(!PageCompound(page) || !PageHead(page));

get_page(page);
node = mpol_misplaced(page, vma, haddr);
if (node != -1)
goto migrate;

It's not obvious at all why the "pte is already unmapped when we decide
to migrate".

So the page lock serialises against parallel faults by the looks of
things but where does it serialise against the transhuge page being
split underneath you and turning it into a regular pmd? I guess the
pmd_same check sortof catches that but it feels like it is caught by
accident instead of on purpose.
