Subject: [PATCH v3 1/6] percpu: fix a comment about the chunks ordering
Date: Wed, 7 Apr 2021 20:57:31 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210408035736.883861-2-guro@fb.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210408035736.883861-1-guro@fb.com>

Since the commit 3e54097beb22 ("percpu: manage chunks based on
contig_bits instead of free_bytes") chunks are sorted based on the
size of the biggest continuous free area instead of the total number
of free bytes. Update the corresponding comment to reflect this.
