[PATCH 3.12 115/144] mm/mempolicy: correct putback method for isolate pages if failed

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Jan 06 2014 - 18:49:42 EST

3.12-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Joonsoo Kim <iamjoonsoo.kim@xxxxxxx>

commit b0e5fd7359f1ce8db4ccb862b3aa80d2f2cbf4d0 upstream.

queue_pages_range() isolates hugetlbfs pages and putback_lru_pages()
can't handle these. We should change it to putback_movable_pages().

Naoya said that it is worth going into stable, because it can break
in-use hugepage list.
