AFS: Correctly translate auth error aborts and don't failover in such cases

Authentication error abort codes should be translated to appropriate
Linux error codes, rather than all being translated to EREMOTEIO - which
indicates that the server had internal problems.

Additionally, a server shouldn't be marked unavailable and the next
server tried if an authentication error occurs.  This will quickly make
all the servers unavailable to the client.  Instead the error should be
returned straight to the user.

Connections that have seen a connection-level abort should not be reused

Connection-level aborts occur due to such things as authentication

10 years agofbdev: add support for handoff from firmware to hw framebuffers

fbdev: add support for handoff from firmware to hw framebuffers

With KMS we have ran into an issue where we really want the KMS fb driver
to be the one running the console, so panics etc can be shown by switching
out of X etc.

However with vesafb/efifb built-in, we end up with those on fb0 and the
KMS fb driver on fb1, driving the same piece of hw, so this adds an fb
info flag to denote a firmware fbdev, and adds a new aperture base/size
range which can be compared when the hw drivers are installed to see if
there is a conflict with a firmware driver, and if there is the firmware
driver is unregistered and the hw driver takes over.

It uses new aperture_base/size members instead of comparing on the fix
smem_start/length, as smem_start/length might for example only cover the
first 1MB of the PCI aperture, and we could allocate the kms fb from 8MB
into the aperture, thus they would never overlap.

ARGB1888 and ARGB4888 is decided by var->transp.length and this variable
is set by s3c_fb_check_var().

In s3c_fb_check_var(), if var->vits_per_pixel is 25 or 28, then
var->transp.length would be 1 or 3.

Therefore alpha mode(ARGB1888 or ARGB4888) could be decided through that
variable.

For using alpha mode, you need to set the following: This code should be
added to your machine code as platform data.

static struct s3c_fb_pd_win xxx_fb_win0 = {
/* this is to ensure we use win0 */
.win_mode = {
.pixclock = (8+8+8+240)*(38+4+38+400),
.left_margin = 8,
.right_margin = 8,
.upper_margin = 38,
.lower_margin = 38,
.hsync_len = 8,
.vsync_len = 4,
.xres = 240,
.yres = 400,
},
.max_bpp = 32,
.default_bpp = 24,
};

static struct s3c_fb_pd_win xxx_fb_win1 = {
.win_mode = {
.pixclock = (8+8+8+240)*(38+4+38+400),
.left_margin = 8,
.right_margin = 8,
.upper_margin = 38,
.lower_margin = 38,
.hsync_len = 8,
.vsync_len = 4,
.xres = 240,
.yres = 400,
},
.max_bpp = 32,
.default_bpp = 28,
};

static struct s3c_fb_platdata xxx_lcd_pdata __initdata = {
.win[0] = &ncp_fb_win0,
.win[1] = &ncp_fb_win1,
.vidcon0 = VIDCON0_VIDOUT_RGB | VIDCON0_PNRMODE_RGB,
.vidcon1 = VIDCON1_INV_HSYNC | VIDCON1_INV_VSYNC,
.setup_gpio = xxx_fb_gpio_setup,
};

s3c_fb_set_platdata(&xxx_lcd_pdata);

The above code sets pixelformat for window0 layer to RGB888 and window1
layer to ARGB4888.

Ben Nizette [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:34:24 +0000]
atmel-lcdc: fix pixclock upper bound detection

AFAICT the code which checks that the requested pixclock value is within
bounds is incorrect.  It ensures that the lcdc core clock is at least
(bytes per pixel) times higher than the pixel clock rather than just
greater than or equal to.

There are tighter restrictions on the pixclock value as a function of bus
width for STN panels but even then it isn't a simple relationship as
currently checked for.  IMO either something like the below patch should
be applied or else more detailed checking logic should be implemented
which takes in to account the panel type as well.

10 years agolis3: add click function
Daniel Mack [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:34:17 +0000]
lis3: add click function

The LIS302DL accelerometer chip has a 'click' feature which can be used to
detect sudden motion on any of the three axis.  Configuration data is
passed via spi platform_data and no action is taken if that's not
specified, so it won't harm any existing platform.

To make the configuration effective, the IRQ lines need to be set up
appropriately.  This patch also adds a way to do that from board support
code.

The DD_* definitions were factored out to an own enum because they are
specific to LIS3LV02D devices.

10 years agolis3: remove automatic shutdown of the device
Eric Piel [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:34:14 +0000]
lis3: remove automatic shutdown of the device

After measurement on my laptop, it seems that turning off the device does
not bring any energy saving (within 0.1W precision).  So let's keep the
device always on.  It simplifies the code, and it avoids the problem of
reading a wrong value sometimes just after turning the device on.

Moreover, since commit ef2cfc790bf5f0ff189b01eabc0f4feb5e8524df had been
too zealous, the device was actually never turned off anyway.  This patch
also restores the damages done by this commit concerning the
initialisation/poweroff.

Also do more clean up with the usage of the lis3_dev global variable.

rb_tree: make clear distinction between two different cases in rb_erase()

There are two cases when a node, having 2 childs, is erased:
'normal case': the successor is not the right-hand-child of the node to be erased
'special case': the successor is the right-hand child of the node to be erased

Here some ascii-art, with following symbols (referring to the code):
O: node to be deleted
N: the successor of O
P: parent of N
C: child of N
L: some other node

normal case:

               O                         N
              / \                       / \
             /   \                     /   \
            L     \                   L     \

lib/genalloc.c: remove unmatched write_lock() in gen_pool_destroy

There is a call to write_lock() in gen_pool_destroy which is not balanced
by any corresponding write_unlock().  This causes problems with preemption
because the preemption-disable counter is incremented in the write_lock()

10 years agoconsole: make blank timeout value a boot option
Daniel Mack [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:33:52 +0000]
console: make blank timeout value a boot option

The console blank timer is currently hardcoded to 10*60 seconds which
might be annoying on systems with no input devices attached to wake up the
console again.  Especially during development, disabling the screen saver
can be handy - for example when debugging the root fs mount mechanism or
other scenarios where no userspace program could be started to do that at
runtime from userspace.

This patch defines a core_param for the variable in charge which allows
users to entirely disable the blank feature at boot time by setting it 0.
The value can still be overwritten at runtime using the standard ioctl
call - this just allows to conditionally change the default.

Round the slow work queue's cull and OOM timeouts to whole second boundary

idle threads and, after OOM, to delay new thread creation.

This patch also extracts the mod_timer() logic for the cull timer into a

By rounding non-time-critical timers such as these to whole seconds, they

This allows the CPU wake up less, which saves power.

10 years agoremove put_cpu_no_resched()
Thomas Gleixner [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:33:39 +0000]
remove put_cpu_no_resched()

put_cpu_no_resched() is an optimization of put_cpu() which unfortunately
can cause high latencies.

The nfs iostats code uses put_cpu_no_resched() in a code sequence where a
reschedule request caused by an interrupt between the get_cpu() and the
put_cpu_no_resched() can delay the reschedule for at least HZ.

The other users of put_cpu_no_resched() optimize correctly in interrupt
code, but there is no real harm in using the put_cpu() function which is
an alias for preempt_enable().  The extra check of the preemmpt count is
not as critical as the potential source of missing a reschedule.

Debugged in the preempt-rt tree and verified in mainline.

Impact: remove a high latency source

10 years agopoll: avoid extra wakeups in select/poll
Eric Dumazet [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:33:36 +0000]
poll: avoid extra wakeups in select/poll

After introduction of keyed wakeups Davide Libenzi did on epoll, we are
able to avoid spurious wakeups in poll()/select() code too.

For example, typical use of poll()/select() is to wait for incoming
network frames on many sockets.  But TX completion for UDP/TCP frames call
sock_wfree() which in turn schedules thread.

When scheduled, thread does a full scan of all polled fds and can sleep
again, because nothing is really available.  If number of fds is large,
this cause significant load.

This patch makes select()/poll() aware of keyed wakeups and useless
wakeups are avoided.  This reduces number of context switches by about 50%
on some setups, and work performed by sofirq handlers.

At lumpy reclaim, a page failed to be taken by __isolate_lru_page() can be
pushed back to "src" list by list_move().  But the page may not be from
"src" list.  This pushes the page back to wrong LRU.  And list_move()
itself is unnecessary because the page is not on top of LRU.  Then, leave
it as it is if __isolate_lru_page() fails.

10 years agovmscan: count the number of times zone_reclaim() scans and fails

vmscan: count the number of times zone_reclaim() scans and fails

On NUMA machines, the administrator can configure zone_reclaim_mode that
is a more targetted form of direct reclaim.  On machines with large NUMA
distances for example, a zone_reclaim_mode defaults to 1 meaning that

There is a heuristic that determines if the scan is worthwhile but it is
possible that the heuristic will fail and the CPU gets tied up scanning
uselessly.  Detecting the situation requires some guesswork and
experimentation so this patch adds a counter "zreclaim_failed" to
/proc/vmstat.  If during high CPU utilisation this counter is increasing
rapidly, then the resolution to the problem may be to set
/proc/sys/vm/zone_reclaim_mode to 0.

10 years agovmscan: do not unconditionally treat zones that fail zone_reclaim() as full
Mel Gorman [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:33:22 +0000]
vmscan: do not unconditionally treat zones that fail zone_reclaim() as full

On NUMA machines, the administrator can configure zone_reclaim_mode that
is a more targetted form of direct reclaim.  On machines with large NUMA
distances for example, a zone_reclaim_mode defaults to 1 meaning that
clean unmapped pages will be reclaimed if the zone watermarks are not
being met.  The problem is that zone_reclaim() failing at all means the
zone gets marked full.

This can cause situations where a zone is usable, but is being skipped
because it has been considered full.  Take a situation where a large tmpfs
mount is occuping a large percentage of memory overall.  The pages do not
get cleaned or reclaimed by zone_reclaim(), but the zone gets marked full
and the zonelist cache considers them not worth trying in the future.

This patch makes zone_reclaim() return more fine-grained information about
what occured when zone_reclaim() failued.  The zone only gets marked full
if it really is unreclaimable.  If it's a case that the scan did not occur
or if enough pages were not reclaimed with the limited reclaim_mode, then
the zone is simply skipped.

There is a side-effect to this patch.  Currently, if zone_reclaim()
successfully reclaimed SWAP_CLUSTER_MAX, an allocation attempt would go
ahead.  With this patch applied, zone watermarks are rechecked after
zone_reclaim() does some work.

This bug was introduced by commit 9276b1bc96a132f4068fdee00983c532f43d3a26
("memory page_alloc zonelist caching speedup") way back in 2.6.19 when the
zonelist_cache was introduced.  It was not intended that zone_reclaim()
aggressively consider the zone to be full when it failed as full direct
reclaim can still be an option.  Due to the age of the bug, it should be
considered a -stable candidate.

10 years agovmscan: properly account for the number of page cache pages zone_reclaim() can reclaim
Mel Gorman [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:33:20 +0000]
vmscan: properly account for the number of page cache pages zone_reclaim() can reclaim

A bug was brought to my attention against a distro kernel but it affects
mainline and I believe problems like this have been reported in various
guises on the mailing lists although I don't have specific examples at the
moment.

The reported problem was that malloc() stalled for a long time (minutes in
some cases) if a large tmpfs mount was occupying a large percentage of
memory overall.  The pages did not get cleaned or reclaimed by
zone_reclaim() because the zone_reclaim_mode was unsuitable, but the lists
are uselessly scanned frequencly making the CPU spin at near 100%.

This patchset intends to address that bug and bring the behaviour of
zone_reclaim() more in line with expectations which were noticed during
investigation.  It is based on top of mmotm and takes advantage of
Kosaki's work with respect to zone_reclaim().

Patch 1 fixes the heuristics that zone_reclaim() uses to determine if the
scan should go ahead. The broken heuristic is what was causing the
malloc() stall as it uselessly scanned the LRU constantly. Currently,
zone_reclaim is assuming zone_reclaim_mode is 1 and historically it
could not deal with tmpfs pages at all. This fixes up the heuristic so
that an unnecessary scan is more likely to be correctly avoided.

Patch 2 notes that zone_reclaim() returning a failure automatically means
the zone is marked full. This is not always true. It could have
failed because the GFP mask or zone_reclaim_mode were unsuitable.

Patch 3 introduces a counter zreclaim_failed that will increment each
time the zone_reclaim scan-avoidance heuristics fail. If that
counter is rapidly increasing, then zone_reclaim_mode should be
set to 0 as a temporarily resolution and a bug reported because
the scan-avoidance heuristic is still broken.

This patch:

On NUMA machines, the administrator can configure zone_reclaim_mode that
is a more targetted form of direct reclaim.  On machines with large NUMA
distances for example, a zone_reclaim_mode defaults to 1 meaning that
clean unmapped pages will be reclaimed if the zone watermarks are not
being met.

There is a heuristic that determines if the scan is worthwhile but the
problem is that the heuristic is not being properly applied and is
basically assuming zone_reclaim_mode is 1 if it is enabled.  The lack of
proper detection can manfiest as high CPU usage as the LRU list is scanned
uselessly.

Historically, once enabled it was depending on NR_FILE_PAGES which may
include swapcache pages that the reclaim_mode cannot deal with.  Patch
vmscan-change-the-number-of-the-unmapped-files-in-zone-reclaim.patch by
Kosaki Motohiro noted that zone_page_state(zone, NR_FILE_PAGES) included
pages that were not file-backed such as swapcache and made a calculation
based on the inactive, active and mapped files.  This is far superior when
zone_reclaim==1 but if RECLAIM_SWAP is set, then NR_FILE_PAGES is a
reasonable starting figure.

This patch alters how zone_reclaim() works out how many pages it might be
able to reclaim given the current reclaim_mode.  If RECLAIM_SWAP is set in
the reclaim_mode it will either consider NR_FILE_PAGES as potential
candidates or else use NR_{IN}ACTIVE}_PAGES-NR_FILE_MAPPED to discount
swapcache and other non-file-backed pages.  If RECLAIM_WRITE is not set,
then NR_FILE_DIRTY number of pages are not candidates.  If RECLAIM_SWAP is
not set, then NR_FILE_MAPPED are not.

10 years agowriteback: skip new or to-be-freed inodes
Wu Fengguang [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:33:17 +0000]
writeback: skip new or to-be-freed inodes

1) I_FREEING tests should be coupled with I_CLEAR

The two I_FREEING tests are racy because clear_inode() can set i_state to
I_CLEAR between the clear of I_SYNC and the test of I_FREEING.

2) skip I_WILL_FREE inodes in generic_sync_sb_inodes() to avoid possible
   races with generic_forget_inode()

generic_forget_inode() sets I_WILL_FREE call writeback on its own, so
generic_sync_sb_inodes() shall not try to step in and create possible races:

  generic_forget_inode
    inode->i_state |= I_WILL_FREE;
    spin_unlock(&inode_lock);
                                       generic_sync_sb_inodes()
                                         spin_lock(&inode_lock);
                                         __iget(inode);
                                         __writeback_single_inode
                                           // see non zero i_count
 may WARN here ==>                         WARN_ON(inode->i_state & I_WILL_FREE);
                                         spin_unlock(&inode_lock);
 may call generic_forget_inode again ==> iput(inode);

The above race and warning didn't turn up because writeback_inodes() holds
the s_umount lock, so generic_forget_inode() finds MS_ACTIVE and returns
early.  But we are not sure the UBIFS calls and future callers will
guarantee that.  So skip I_WILL_FREE inodes for the sake of safety.

10 years agooom: only oom kill exiting tasks with attached memory
David Rientjes [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:33:16 +0000]
oom: only oom kill exiting tasks with attached memory

When a task is chosen for oom kill and is found to be PF_EXITING,
__oom_kill_task() is called to elevate the task's timeslice and give it
access to memory reserves so that it may quickly exit.

This privilege is unnecessary, however, if the task has already detached
its mm.  Although its possible for the mm to become detached later since
task_lock() is not held, __oom_kill_task() will simply be a no-op in such
circumstances.

Subsequently, it is no longer necessary to warn about killing mm-less
tasks since it is a no-op.

10 years agovmscan: merge duplicate code in shrink_active_list()
Wu Fengguang [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:33:13 +0000]
vmscan: merge duplicate code in shrink_active_list()

The "move pages to active list" and "move pages to inactive list" code
blocks are mostly identical and can be served by a function.

Thanks to Andrew Morton for pointing this out.

Note that buffer_heads_over_limit check will also be carried out for
re-activated pages, which is slightly different from pre-2.6.28 kernels.
Also, Rik's "vmscan: evict use-once pages first" patch could totally stop
scans of active file list when memory pressure is low.  So the net effect
could be, the number of buffer heads is now more likely to grow large.

However that's fine according to Johannes' comments:

  I don't think that this could be harmful.  We just preserve the buffer
  mappings of what we consider the working set and with low memory
  pressure, as you say, this set is not big.

  As to stripping of reactivated pages: the only pages we re-activate
  for now are those VM_EXEC mapped ones.  Since we don't expect IO from
  or to these pages, removing the buffer mappings in case they grow too
  large should be okay, I guess.

vmscan: make mapped executable pages the first class citizen

Protect referenced PROT_EXEC mapped pages from being deactivated.

PROT_EXEC(or its internal presentation VM_EXEC) pages normally belong to some
currently running executables and their linked libraries, they shall really be
cached aggressively to provide good user experiences.

Thanks to Johannes Weiner for the advice to reuse the VMA walk in
page_referenced() to get the PROT_EXEC bit.

[more details]

( The consequences of this patch will have to be discussed together with
  Rik van Riel's recent patch "vmscan: evict use-once pages first". )

( Some of the good points and insights are taken into this changelog.
  Thanks to all the involved people for the great LKML discussions. )

the problem
===========

For a typical desktop, the most precious working set is composed of
*actively accessed*
(1) memory mapped executables
(2) and their anonymous pages
(3) and other files
(4) and the dcache/icache/.. slabs
while the least important data are
(5) infrequently used or use-once files

For a typical desktop, one major problem is busty and large amount of (5)
use-once files flushing out the working set.

Inside the working set, (4) dcache/icache have already been too sticky ;-)
So we only have to care (2) anonymous and (1)(3) file pages.

anonymous pages
===============

Anonymous pages are effectively immune to the streaming IO attack, because we
now have separate file/anon LRU lists. When the use-once files crowd into the
file LRU, the list's "quality" is significantly lowered. Therefore the scan
balance policy in get_scan_ratio() will choose to scan the (low quality) file
LRU much more frequently than the anon LRU.

file pages
==========

Rik proposed to *not* scan the active file LRU when the inactive list grows
larger than active list. This guarantees that when there are use-once streaming
IO, and the working set is not too large(so that active_size < inactive_size),
the active file LRU will *not* be scanned at all. So the not-too-large working
set can be well protected.

But there are also situations where the file working set is a bit large so that
(active_size >= inactive_size), or the streaming IOs are not purely use-once.
In these cases, the active list will be scanned slowly. Because the current
shrink_active_list() policy is to deactivate active pages regardless of their
referenced bits. The deactivated pages become susceptible to the streaming IO
attack: the inactive list could be scanned fast (500MB / 50MBps = 10s) so that
the deactivated pages don't have enough time to get re-referenced. Because a
user tend to switch between windows in intervals from seconds to minutes.

This patch holds mapped executable pages in the active list as long as they
are referenced during each full scan of the active list.  Because the active
list is normally scanned much slower, they get longer grace time (eg. 100s)
for further references, which better matches the pace of user operations.

Therefore this patch greatly prolongs the in-cache time of executable code,
when there are moderate memory pressures.

before patch: guaranteed to be cached if reference intervals < I
after  patch: guaranteed to be cached if reference intervals < I+A
      (except when randomly reclaimed by the lumpy reclaim)
where
A = time to fully scan the   active file LRU
I = time to fully scan the inactive file LRU

Note that normally A >> I.

side effects
============

This patch is safe in general, it restores the pre-2.6.28 mmap() behavior
but in a much smaller and well targeted scope.

One may worry about some one to abuse the PROT_EXEC heuristic.  But as
Andrew Morton stated, there are other tricks to getting that sort of boost.

Another concern is the PROT_EXEC mapped pages growing large in rare cases,
and therefore hurting reclaim efficiency. But a sane application targeted for
large audience will never use PROT_EXEC for data mappings. If some home made
application tries to abuse that bit, it shall be aware of the consequences.
If it is abused to scale of 2/3 total memory, it gains nothing but overheads.

benchmarks
==========

1) memory tight desktop

1.1) brief summary

- clock time and major faults are reduced by 50%;
- pswpin numbers are reduced to ~1/3.

That means X desktop responsiveness is doubled under high memory/swap pressure.

1.2) test scenario

- nfsroot gnome desktop with 512M physical memory
- run some programs, and switch between the existing windows
  after starting each new program.

2) memory flushing in a file server

2.1) brief summary

The number of major faults from 50 to 3 during 10% cache hot reads.

That means this patch successfully stops major faults when the active file
list is slowly scanned when there are partially cache hot streaming IO.

2.2) test scenario

Do 100000 pread(size=110 pages, offset=(i*100) pages), where 10% of the
pages will be activated:

        for i in `seq 0 100 10000000`; do echo $i 110;  done > pattern-hot-10
        iotrace.rb --load pattern-hot-10 --play /b/sparse
vmmon  nr_mapped nr_active_file nr_inactive_file   pgmajfault pgdeactivate pgfree

and monitor /proc/vmstat during the time. The test box has 2G memory.

I carried out tests on fresh booted console as well as X desktop, and
fetched the vmstat numbers on

(1) begin:     shortly after the big read IO starts;
(2) end:       just before the big read IO stops;
(3) restore:   the big read IO stops and the zsh working set restored
(4) restore X: after IO, switch back and forth between the urxvt and firefox
               windows to restore their working set.

2.3) console mode results

        nr_mapped   nr_active_file nr_inactive_file       pgmajfault     pgdeactivate           pgfree

2.6.29 VM_EXEC protection ON:

end:          275           231976           233914              633           776271         20933042

begin:       2479             2344             9659              210                0           579643
end:          284           232010           234142              260           772776         20917184
restore:      379           232159           234371              301           774888         20967849

The above console numbers show that

- The startup pgmajfault of 2.6.30-rc4-mm is merely 1/3 that of 2.6.29.
  I'd attribute that improvement to the mmap readahead improvements :-)

- The pgmajfault increment during the file copy is 633-630=3 vs 260-210=50.
  That's a huge improvement - which means with the VM_EXEC protection logic,
  active mmap pages is pretty safe even under partially cache hot streaming IO.

- when active:inactive file lru size reaches 1:1, their scan rates is 1:20.8
  under 10% cache hot IO. (computed with formula Dpgdeactivate:Dpgfree)
  That roughly means the active mmap pages get 20.8 more chances to get
  re-referenced to stay in memory.

- The absolute nr_mapped drops considerably to 1/9 during the big IO, and the
  dropped pages are mostly inactive ones. The patch has almost no impact in
  this aspect, that means it won't unnecessarily increase memory pressure.
  (In contrast, your 20% mmap protection ratio will keep them all, and
  therefore eliminate the extra 41 major faults to restore working set
  of zsh etc.)

The iotrace.rb read throughput is
151.194384MB/s 284.198252s 100001x 450560b --load pattern-hot-10 --play /b/sparse
which means the inactive list is rotated at the speed of 250MB/s,
so a full scan of which takes about 3.5 seconds, while a full scan
of active file list takes about 77 seconds.

2.4) X mode results

We can reach roughly the same conclusions for X desktop:

        nr_mapped   nr_active_file nr_inactive_file       pgmajfault     pgdeactivate           pgfree

2.6.30-rc4-mm VM_EXEC protection ON:
begin:       9740             8920            64075              561                0           678360
end:          768           218254           220029              565           798953         21057006
restore:      857           218543           220987              606           799462         21075710
restore X:   2414           218560           225344              797           799462         21080795

2.6.30-rc4-mm VM_EXEC protection OFF:
begin:       9368             5035            26389              554                0           633391
end:          770           218449           221230              661           646472         17832500
restore:     1113           218466           220978              710           649881         17905235
restore X:   2687           218650           225484              947           802700         21083584

- the absolute nr_mapped drops considerably (to 1/13 of the original size)
  during the streaming IO.
- the delta of pgmajfault is 3 vs 107 during IO, or 236 vs 393
  during the whole process.

10 years agovmscan: report vm_flags in page_referenced()
Wu Fengguang [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:33:05 +0000]
vmscan: report vm_flags in page_referenced()

Collect vma->vm_flags of the VMAs that actually referenced the page.

This is preparing for more informed reclaim heuristics, eg.  to protect
executable file pages more aggressively.  For now only the VM_EXEC bit
will be used by the caller.

Thanks to Johannes, Peter and Minchan for all the good tips.
