[PATCH] tcp: properly initialize tcp memory limits part 2 (fix nfs regression)

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

From: Sergei Trofimovich <slyfox@xxxxxxxxxx>

The commit introduced NFS file transfer hangup (proved by bisection).
> Commit 4acb4190 tries to fix the using uninitialized value
> introduced by commit 3dc43e3,  but it would make the
> per-socket memory limits too small.
> This patch fixes this and also remove the redundant codes
> introduced in 4acb4190.

The change looks like a typo (division flipped to multiplication):
> limit = nr_free_buffer_pages() / 8;
> limit = nr_free_buffer_pages() << (PAGE_SHIFT - 10);

Patch restores division.
