Subject[PATCH v1] mm/hwpoison: convert TTU_IGNORE_HWPOISON to TTU_HWPOISON
Date
From: Naoya Horiguchi <naoya.horiguchi@nec.com>

After a memory error happens on a clean folio, a process unexpectedly
receives SIGBUS when it accesses to the error page. This SIGBUS killing
is pointless and simply degrades the level of RAS of the system, because
the clean folio can be dropped without any data lost on memory error
handling as we do for a clean pagecache.

When memory_failure() is called on a clean folio, try_to_unmap() is called
twice (one from split_huge_page() and one from hwpoison_user_mappings()).
The root cause of the issue is that pte conversion to hwpoisoned entry is
now done in the first call of try_to_unmap() because PageHWPoison is already
set at this point, while it's actually expected to be done in the second
call. This behavior disturbs the error handling operation like removing
pagecache, which results in the malfunction described above.

So convert TTU_IGNORE_HWPOISON into TTU_HWPOISON and set TTU_HWPOISON only
when we really intend to convert pte to hwpoison entry. This can prevent
other callers of try_to_unmap() from accidentally converting to hwpoison
entries.
