mm, page_owner: dump page owner info from dump_page()
The page_owner mechanism is useful for dealing with memory leaks. By reading /sys/kernel/debug/page_owner one can determine the stack traces leading to allocations of all pages, and find e.g. a buggy driver. This information might be also potentially useful for debugging, such as the VM_BUG_ON_PAGE() calls to dump_page(). So let's print the stored info from dump_page(). Example output: page:ffffea000292f1c0 count:1 mapcount:0 mapping:ffff8800b2f6cc18 index:0x91d flags: 0x1fffff8001002c(referenced|uptodate|lru|mappedtodisk) page dumped because: VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(1) page->mem_cgroup:ffff8801392c5000 page allocated via order 0, migratetype Movable, gfp_mask 0x24213ca(GFP_HIGHUSER_MOVABLE|__GFP_COLD|__GFP_NOWARN|__GFP_NORETRY) [<ffffffff811682c4>] __alloc_pages_nodemask+0x134/0x230 [<ffffffff811b40c8>] alloc_pages_current+0x88/0x120 [<ffffffff8115e386>] __page_cache_alloc+0xe6/0x120 [<ffffffff8116ba6c>] __do_page_cache_readahead+0xdc/0x240 [<ffffffff8116bd05>] ondemand_readahead+0x135/0x260 [<ffffffff8116be9c>] page_cache_async_readahead+0x6c/0x70 [<ffffffff811604c2>] generic_file_read_iter+0x3f2/0x760 [<ffffffff811e0dc7>] __vfs_read+0xa7/0xd0 page has been migrated, last migrate reason: compaction Signed-off-by: Vlastimil Babka <vbabka@suse.cz> Acked-by: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.com> Cc: Joonsoo Kim <iamjoonsoo.kim@lge.com> Cc: Minchan Kim <minchan@kernel.org> Cc: Sasha Levin <sasha.levin@oracle.com> Cc: "Kirill A.
