[PATCH 11/12] nfs: Prevent page allocator recursions with swap over NFS.

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

GFP_NOFS is _more_ permissive than GFP_NOIO in that it will initiate
IO, just not of any filesystem data.

The problem is that previously NOFS was correct because that avoids
recursion into the NFS code. With swap-over-NFS, it is no longer
correct as swap IO can lead to this recursion.
