Subject[PATCH] khugepaged: collapse_pte_mapped_thp() protect the pmd lock
When retract_page_tables() removes a page table to make way for a huge
pmd, it holds huge page lock, i_mmap_lock_write, mmap_write_trylock and
pmd lock; but when collapse_pte_mapped_thp() does the same (to handle
the case when the original mmap_write_trylock had failed), only
mmap_write_trylock and pmd lock are held.

That's not enough. One machine has twice crashed under load, with
"BUG: spinlock bad magic" and GPF on 6b6b6b6b6b6b6b6b. Examining the
second crash, page_vma_mapped_walk_done()'s spin_unlock of pvmw->ptl
(serving page_referenced() on a file THP, that had found a page table
at *pmd) discovers that the page table page and its lock have already
been freed by the time it comes to unlock.

Follow the example of retract_page_tables(), but we only need one of
huge page lock or i_mmap_lock_write to secure against this: because it's
the narrower lock, and because it simplifies collapse_pte_mapped_thp()
to know the hpage earlier, choose to rely on huge page lock here.
