[PATCH 38/97] mm: vmscan: respect NUMA policy mask when shrinking slab on direct reclaim

commit 99120b772b52853f9a2b829a21dd44d9b20558f1 upstream.

When direct reclaim is executed by a process bound to a set of NUMA
nodes, we should scan only those nodes when possible, but currently we
will scan kmem from all online nodes even if the kmem shrinker is NUMA
aware. That said, binding a process to a particular NUMA node won't
prevent it from shrinking inode/dentry caches from other nodes, which is
not good. Fix this.
