mm: fix corruption of hibernation caused by reusing swap during image saving
Since 2.6.31, swap_map[]'s refcounting was changed to show that a used swap entry is just for swap-cache, can be reused. Then, while scanning free entry in swap_map[], a swap entry may be able to be reclaimed and reused. It was caused by commit c9e444103b5e7a5 ("mm: reuse unused swap entry if necessary"). But this caused deta corruption at resume. The scenario is - Assume a clean-swap cache, but mapped. - at hibernation_snapshot[], clean-swap-cache is saved as clean-swap-cache and swap_map[] is marked as SWAP_HAS_CACHE. - then, save_image() is called. And reuse SWAP_HAS_CACHE entry to save image, and break the contents. After resume: - the memory reclaim runs and finds clean-not-referenced-swap-cache and discards it because it's marked as clean. But here, the contents on disk and swap-cache is inconsistent. Hance memory is corrupted. This patch avoids the bug by not reclaiming swap-entry during hibernation. This is a quick fix for backporting. Signed-off-by: KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu@jp.fujitsu.com> Cc: Rafael J.
