Subject: [PATCH] writeback: memcg: simplify cgroup_writeback_by_id
Date: Thu, 22 Jul 2021 11:26:27 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210722182627.2267368-1-shakeelb@google.com> (raw)

Currently cgroup_writeback_by_id calls mem_cgroup_wb_stats() to get
dirty pages for a memcg. However mem_cgroup_wb_stats() does a lot more
than just get the number of dirty pages. Just directly get the number of
dirty pages instead of calling mem_cgroup_wb_stats(). Also
cgroup_writeback_by_id() is only called for best-effort dirty flushing,
so remove the unused 'nr' parameter and no need to explicitly flush
memcg stats.
