[PATCHv22 10/16] mm: Serialize access to min_free_kbytes

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Mel Gorman <mgorman@xxxxxxx>

There is a race between the min_free_kbytes sysctl, memory hotplug
and transparent hugepage support enablement.  Memory hotplug uses a
zonelists_mutex to avoid a race when building zonelists. Reuse it to
serialise watermark updates.

[a.p.zijlstra@xxxxxxxxx: Older patch fixed the race with spinlock]
