Subject: [PATCH v3 4/6] percpu: generalize pcpu_balance_populated()
Date: Wed, 7 Apr 2021 20:57:34 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210408035736.883861-5-guro@fb.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210408035736.883861-1-guro@fb.com>

To prepare for the depopulation of percpu chunks, split out the
populating part of the pcpu_balance_populated() into the new
pcpu_grow_populated() (with an intention to add
pcpu_shrink_populated() in the next commit).

The goal of pcpu_balance_populated() is to determine whether
there is a shortage or an excessive amount of empty percpu pages
and call into the corresponding function.

pcpu_grow_populated() takes a desired number of pages as an argument
(nr_to_pop). If it creates a new chunk, nr_to_pop should be updated
to reflect that the new chunk could be created already populated.
Otherwise an infinite loop might appear.
