Subject: [patch 02/14] mm/compaction: stop isolation if too many pages are isolated and we have pages to migrate
Date: Fri, 13 Nov 2020 22:51:43 -0800
Message-ID: <20201114065143.mF1DRNoun%akpm@linux-foundation.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20201113225115.b24faebc85f710d5aff55aa7@linux-foundation.org>

From: Zi Yan <ziy@nvidia.com>
Subject: mm/compaction: stop isolation if too many pages are isolated and we have pages to migrate

In isolate_migratepages_block, if we have too many isolated pages and
nr_migratepages is not zero, we should try to migrate what we have without
wasting time on isolating.

In theory it's possible that multiple parallel compactions will cause
too_many_isolated() to become true even if each has isolated less than
COMPACT_CLUSTER_MAX, and loop forever in the while loop.  Bailing
immediately prevents that.
