Subject: [PATCH] mm, memcg: do not set reclaim_state on soft limit reclaim
Date: Wed, 28 Aug 2019 09:18:08 +0200
Message-ID: <20190828071808.20410-1-mhocko@kernel.org> (raw)

From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.com>

Adric Blake has noticed[1] the following warning:
[38491.963105] WARNING: CPU: 7 PID: 175 at mm/vmscan.c:245 set_task_reclaim_state+0x1e/0x40

which tells us that soft limit reclaim is about to overwrite the
reclaim_state configured up in the call chain (kswapd in this case but
the direct reclaim is equally possible). This means that reclaim stats
would get misleading once the soft reclaim returns and another reclaim
is done.

Fix the warning by dropping set_task_reclaim_state from the soft reclaim
which is always called with reclaim_state set up.
