[PATCH v5 01/11] mm: x86: move _PAGE_SWP_SOFT_DIRTY from bit 7 to bit 1




From: Naoya Horiguchi <n-horiguchi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

pmd_present() checks _PAGE_PSE along with _PAGE_PRESENT to avoid
false negative return when it races with thp spilt
(during which _PAGE_PRESENT is temporary cleared.) I don't think that
dropping _PAGE_PSE check in pmd_present() works well because it can
hurt optimization of tlb handling in thp split.
In the current kernel, bits 1-4 are not used in non-present format
since commit 00839ee3b299 ("x86/mm: Move swap offset/type up in PTE to
work around erratum"). So let's move _PAGE_SWP_SOFT_DIRTY to bit 1.
Bit 7 is used as reserved (always clear), so please don't use it for
other purpose.
