Subject: [PATCH v2 0/4] Remove nrexceptional tracking
Date: Mon, 26 Oct 2020 15:18:45 +0000
Message-ID: <20201026151849.24232-1-willy@infradead.org> (raw)

We actually use nrexceptional for very little these days.  It's a minor
pain to keep in sync with nrpages, but the pain becomes much bigger
with the THP patches because we don't know how many indices a shadow
entry occupies.  It's easier to just remove it than keep it accurate.

Also, we save 8 bytes per inode which is nothing to sneeze at; on my
laptop, it would improve shmem_inode_cache from 22 to 23 objects per
16kB, and inode_cache from 26 to 27 objects.  Combined, that saves
a megabyte of memory from a combined usage of 25MB for both caches.
Unfortunately, ext4 doesn't cross a magic boundary, so it doesn't save
any memory for ext4.

  mm: Introduce and use mapping_empty
  mm: Stop accounting shadow entries
  dax: Account DAX entries as nrpages
  mm: Remove nrexceptional from inode
