Re: [PATCH 02/15] mm: sl[au]b: Add knowledge of PFMEMALLOC reserve pages

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

Proposal for a patch for slub to move the pfmemalloc handling out of the
fastpath by simply not assigning a per cpu slab when pfmemalloc processing
is going on.

Subject: [slub] Fix so that no mods are required for the fast path

Remove the check for pfmemalloc from the alloc hotpath and put the logic after
the election of a new per cpu slab.

For a pfmemalloc page do not use the fast path but force use of the slow
path (which is also used for the debug case).
