Subject: Re: [PATCH V4] mm/vmstat: Add events for THP migration without split
Date: Thu, 9 Jul 2020 08:34:37 -0700
Message-ID: <cab90a5c-4c61-e9ad-659f-a9438d639fe5@infradead.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1594287583-16568-1-git-send-email-anshuman.khandual@arm.com>

Hi,

I have a few comments on this.

a. I reported it very early and should have been Cc-ed.

b. A patch that applies to mmotm or linux-next would have been better
than a full replacement patch.

c. I tried replacing what I believe is the correct/same patch file in mmotm
and still have build errors.

(more below)

These 3 new symbols are still only present if CONFIG_MIGRATION=y, but the build errors
are using these symbols even when CONFIG_MIGRATION is not set.

These references still cause build errors.
