Subject: Re: [PATCHv2] mm/zsmalloc: don't fail if can't create debugfs info
Date: Fri, 20 May 2016 10:33:15 +0800
Message-ID: <CADAEsF_g_Zgw5VmnVJaLLmF+HJr-x+g8Ht==kBJqVF-Ns7nbQg@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

2016-05-19 23:18 GMT+08:00 Dan Streetman <ddstreet@ieee.org>:
> Change the return type of zs_pool_stat_create() to void, and
> remove the logic to abort pool creation if the stat debugfs
> dir/file could not be created.
>
> The debugfs stat file is for debugging/information only, and doesn't
> affect operation of zsmalloc; there is no reason to abort creating
> the pool if the stat file can't be created.  This was seen with
> zswap, which used the same name for all pool creations, which caused
> zsmalloc to fail to create a second pool for zswap if
> CONFIG_ZSMALLOC_STAT was enabled.
