Subject: [PATCH] mm, compaction: Use free lists to quickly locate a migration source -fix
Date: Mon, 4 Feb 2019 12:01:11 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20190204120111.GL9565@techsingularity.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cb0bae2e-8628-1378-68a1-9da02a94652e@suse.cz>

Vlastimil correctly pointed out that when a fast search fails and cc->migrate_pfn
is reinitialised to the lowest PFN found that the caller does not use the updated
PFN.

He also pointed out that there is an inconsistency between
move_freelist_head and move_freelist_tail. This patch adds a new helper
and uses it in move_freelist_tail so that list manipulations are avoided
if the first list item traversed is a suitable migration source. The
end result will be that the helpers should be symmetrical and it's been
confirmed that the scan rates are slightly improved as a result of the
fix but not enough to rewrite the changelogs.

This is a fix for the mmotm patch
mm-compaction-use-free-lists-to-quickly-locate-a-migration-source.patch . It's
been provided as a combined patch as the first patch is not picked up at the
time of writing and a rolled up patch is less likely to fall through the cracks.
