Remove page locking from pmap_mincore().

Authored by markj on Sep 27 2019, 4:30 PM.



It is useless in mincore(2)'s default mode of operation. If we are in
the non-default mode, re-look up the page in the pmap after acquiring
the page's object lock.

Sprinkle some style fixes in vm_map_mincore(). If the approach is
acceptable, I will convert the other implementations of pmap_mincore()
and remove vm_page_pa_tryrelock().

Restore the original comment for the mincore_mapped case, I didn't
mean to rewrite it.

I think the approach of relying on the object lock is fine.

Where does this loop terminate if m->object == object and not NULL ?

kern_proc_vmmap_resident() requires an update as well.

  • Convert other pmaps.
  • Remove vm_page_pa_tryrelock().
  • Initialize pa = 0. Some platforms do not implement pmap_mincore().

Shouldn't this be:

end = round_page(addr0 + len);

This is redundant.

I forgot to submit this comment apparently:

Sorry, I probably don't understand the question. The loop condition is m->object != object. object != NULL implies that object is write-locked, so if m->object == object the page identity cannot change.

I think so.

  • Remove an unnecessary assignment in pmap_mincore().
  • Fix the calculation of end.
