SubjectRe: [PATCH -mm] mm, madvise, THP: Use THP aligned address in madvise_free_huge_pmd()
Date
This cannot happen.

Two address parameters are passed: addr and next.
If “addr” is not aligned and “next” is aligned or the end of madvise range, which might not be aligned,
either way next - addr < HPAGE_PMD_SIZE.

This means the code in “if (next - addr != HPAGE_PMD_SIZE)”, which is above your second hunk,
will split the THP between “addr” and “next” and get out as long as “addr“ is not aligned.
Thus, the code in your second hunk should always get aligned “addr”.

Let me know if I miss anything.


Best Regards,
Yan Zi
