Subject: [PATCH 07/27] mm, vmscan: Remove balance gap
Date: Tue, 21 Jun 2016 15:15:46 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1466518566-30034-8-git-send-email-mgorman@techsingularity.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1466518566-30034-1-git-send-email-mgorman@techsingularity.net>

The balance gap was introduced to apply equal pressure to all zones when
reclaiming for a higher zone. With node-based LRU, the need for the balance
gap is removed and the code is dead so remove it.

[vbabka@suse.cz: Also remove KSWAPD_ZONE_BALANCE_GAP_RATIO]
