Subject: [PATCH 6/6] mm/page_alloc.c: avoid allocating highmem pages via alloc_pages_exact_nid()
Date: Mon, 30 Aug 2021 22:10:51 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210830141051.64090-7-linmiaohe@huawei.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210830141051.64090-1-linmiaohe@huawei.com>

Don't use with __GFP_HIGHMEM because page_address() cannot represent
highmem pages without kmap(). Newly allocated pages would leak as
page_address() will return NULL for highmem pages here. But It works
now because the only caller does not specify __GFP_HIGHMEM now.
