Subject: [v1] mm: khugepaged: avoid overriding min_free_kbytes set by user
Date: Mon, 14 Sep 2020 21:55:48 -0700
Message-ID: <1600145748-26518-1-git-send-email-vijayb@linux.microsoft.com> (raw)

set_recommended_min_free_kbytes need to honor min_free_kbytes set by the
user.  Post start-of-day THP enable or memory hotplug operations can
lose user specified min_free_kbytes, in particular when it is higher than
calculated recommended value.
