Subject: [RFC PATCH 0/3] few memory offlining enhancements
Date: Tue, 20 Nov 2018 14:43:20 +0100
Message-ID: <20181120134323.13007-1-mhocko@kernel.org> (raw)

I have been chasing memory offlining not making progress recently. On
the way I have noticed few weird decisions in the code. The migration
itself is restricted without a reasonable justification and the retry
loop around the migration is quite messy. This is addressed by patch 1
and patch 2.

Patch 3 is targeting on the faultaround code which has been a hot
candidate for the initial issue reported upstream [1] and that I am
debugging internally. It turned out to be not the main contributor
in the end but I believe we should address it regardless. See the patch
description for more details.
