[PATCH 34/34] mm/hugetlb: fix warning in alloc_huge_page/dequeue_huge_page_vma

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


From: Konstantin Khlebnikov <khlebnikov@xxxxxxxxxx>

Stable note: Not tracked in Bugzilla. [get|put]_mems_allowed() is extremely
	expensive and severely impacted page allocator performance. This
	is part of a series of patches that reduce page allocator overhead.

Fix a gcc warning (and bug?) introduced in cc9a6c877 ("cpuset: mm: reduce
large amounts of memory barrier related damage v3")

Local variable "page" can be uninitialized if the nodemask from vma policy
does not intersects with nodemask from cpuset.  Even if it doesn't happens
it is better to initialize this variable explicitly than to introduce
a kernel oops in a weird corner case.

mm/hugetlb.c: In function `alloc_huge_page':
mm/hugetlb.c:1135:5: warning: `page' may be used uninitialized in this function
