[PATCH v3 00/17] MADFV_FREE support
From: Minchan Kim
Date: Wed Nov 11 2015 - 23:34:47 EST
MADV_FREE is on linux-next so long time. The reason was two, I think.
1. MADV_FREE code on reclaim path was really mess.
2. Andrew really want to see voice of userland people who want to use
A few month ago, Daniel Micay(jemalloc active contributor) requested me
to make progress upstreaming but I was busy at that time so it took
so long time for me to revist the code and finally, I clean it up the
mess recently so it solves the #2 issue.
As well, Daniel and Jason(jemalloc maintainer) requested it to Andrew
again recently and they said it would be great to have even though
it has swap dependency now so Andrew decided he will do that for v4.4.
However, there were some concerns, still.
Someone think MADV_FREEed pages are really cold while others are not.
Look at detail in decscription of mm: add knob to tune lazyfreeing.
* swap dependency
In old version, MADV_FREE is equal to MADV_DONTNEED on swapless
system because we don't have aged anonymous LRU list on swapless.
So there are requests for MADV_FREE to support swapless system.
For addressing issues, this version includes new LRU list for
hinted pages and tuning knob. With that, we could support swapless
without zapping hinted pages instantly.
Please, review and comment.
I have been tested it on v4.3-rc7 and couldn't find any problem so far.
In this stage, I don't think we need to write man page.
It could be done after solid policy and implementation.
* Change from v2
* add new LRU list and tuning knob
* support swapless
* Change from v1
* Don't do unnecessary TLB flush - Shaohua
* Added Acked-by - Hugh, Michal
* Merge deactivate_page and deactivate_file_page
* Add pmd_dirty/pmd_mkclean patches for several arches
* Add lazy THP split patch
* Drop zhangyanfei@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx - Delivery Failure
