[ 11/48] mm: correctly synchronize rss-counters at exit/exec

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Konstantin Khlebnikov <khlebnikov@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 4fe7efdbdfb1c7e7a7f31decfd831c0f31d37091 upstream.

do_exit() and exec_mmap() call sync_mm_rss() before mm_release() does
put_user(clear_child_tid) which can update task->rss_stat and thus make
mm->rss_stat inconsistent.  This triggers the "BUG:" printk in check_mm().

Let's fix this bug in the safest way, and optimize/cleanup this later.
