[v4 PATCH 0/2] mm: mempolicy: fix mbind()'s inconsistent behavior for unmovable pages
From: Yang Shi
Date: Fri Jul 19 2019 - 13:21:21 EST
v4: * Fixed the comments from Vlastimil.
* Collected Vlastimil's Reviewed-by.
v3: * Adopted the suggestions from Vlastimil. Saved another 20 lines.
Using flag in struct queue_pages looks not outperform renumbering retval
too much since we still have to return 1 to tell the caller there are
unmovable pages. So just renumber the retval.
* Manpage is not very clear about shared pages when MPOL_MF_MOVE is
specified, just leave it as it is for now till it gets clarified.
v2: * Fixed the inconsistent behavior by not aborting !vma_migratable()
immediately by a separate patch (patch 1/2), and this is also the
preparation for patch 2/2. For the details please see the commit
log. Per Vlastimil.
* Not abort immediately if unmovable page is met. This should handle
non-LRU movable pages and temporary off-LRU pages more friendly.
Per Vlastimil and Michal Hocko.
