Commit Message

Qian Cai Sept. 6, 2019, 8 p.m. UTC
The commit 108c14858b9e ("locking/lockdep: Add support for dynamic
keys") introduced a boot warning on powerpc below, because since the
commit 2d4f567103ff ("KVM: PPC: Introduce kvm_tmp framework") adds
kvm_tmp[] into the .bss section and then free the rest of unused spaces
back to the page allocator.

kernel_init
  kvm_guest_init
    kvm_free_tmp
      free_reserved_area
        free_unref_page
          free_unref_page_prepare

Later, alloc_workqueue() happens to allocate some pages from there and
trigger the warning at,

if (WARN_ON_ONCE(static_obj(key)))

Fix it by adding a generic helper arch_is_bss_hole() to skip those areas
in static_obj(). Since kvm_free_tmp() is only done early during the
boot, just go lockless to make the implementation simple for now.
