[PATCH 1/2 v4][rfc] shmem: provide vm_ops when also providing a mem policy

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


Updating shmem_get_policy to use the vma_policy if provided.
This is to allows us to safely provide shmem_vm_ops to the vma when the vm_file
has not been setup which is the case on the pseudo vmas.
