Subject: [PATCH] mm, compaction: fully assume capture is not NULL in
compact_zone_order()
commit 6467552ca64c4ddd2b83ed73192107d7145f533b upstream.
Dan reports:
The patch 5e1f0f098b46: "mm, compaction: capture a page under direct
compaction" from Mar 5, 2019, leads to the following Smatch complaint:
mm/compaction.c:2321 compact_zone_order()
error: we previously assumed 'capture' could be null (see line 2313)
mm/compaction.c
2288 static enum compact_result compact_zone_order(struct zone *zone, int order,
2289 gfp_t gfp_mask, enum compact_priority prio,
2290 unsigned int alloc_flags, int classzone_idx,
2291 struct page **capture)
^^^^^^^
2313 if (capture)
^^^^^^^
Check for NULL
2314 current->capture_control = &capc;
2315
2316 ret = compact_zone(&cc, &capc);
2317
2318 VM_BUG_ON(!list_empty(&cc.freepages));
2319 VM_BUG_ON(!list_empty(&cc.migratepages));
2320
2321 *capture = capc.page;
^^^^^^^^
Unchecked dereference.
2322 current->capture_control = NULL;
2323
In practice this is not an issue, as the only caller path passes non-NULL
capture:
__alloc_pages_direct_compact()
struct page *page = NULL;
try_to_compact_pages(capture = &page);
compact_zone_order(capture = capture);
So let's remove the unnecessary check, which should also make Smatch happy.
