Series Free some vmemmap pages of HugeTLB page | expand

Commit Message

Muchun Song May 10, 2021, 3 a.m. UTC
In the subsequent patch, we should allocate the vmemmap pages when
freeing a HugeTLB page. But update_and_free_page() can be called
under any context, so we cannot use GFP_KERNEL to allocate vmemmap
pages. However, we can defer the actual freeing in a kworker to
prevent from using GFP_ATOMIC to allocate the vmemmap pages.

The __update_and_free_page() is where the call to allocate vmemmmap
pages will be inserted.
