[PATCH 06/36] autonuma: introduce kthread_bind_node()

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

This function makes it easy to bind the per-node knuma_migrated
threads to their respective NUMA nodes. Those threads take memory from
the other nodes (in round robin with a incoming queue for each remote
node) and they move that memory to their local node.
