Subject: [RFC PATCH 06/31] mm: Make MAX_ORDER configurable in Kconfig for buddy allocator.
Date: Fri, 15 Feb 2019 14:08:31 -0800
Message-ID: <20190215220856.29749-7-zi.yan@sent.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190215220856.29749-1-zi.yan@sent.com>

From: Zi Yan <ziy@nvidia.com>

To test 1GB THP implemented in the following patches, this patch enables
changing MAX_ORDER of the buddy allocator.

It should be dropped later when we solely rely on mem_defrag to generate
1GB THPs.

+	  The kernel memory allocator divides physically contiguous memory
+	  blocks into "zones", where each zone is a power of two number of
+	  pages.  This option selects the largest power of two that the kernel
+	  keeps in the memory allocator.  If you need to allocate very large
+	  blocks of physically contiguous memory, then you may need to
+	  increase this value.
+
+	  This config option is actually maximum order plus one. For example,
+	  a value of 11 means that the largest free memory block is 2^10 pages.
