[RFC PATCH 6/7] workingset: memcg: sleep when flushing stats in workingset_refault()

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


In workingset_refault(), we call mem_cgroup_flush_stats_delayed() to
flush stats within an RCU read section and with sleeping disallowed.
Move the call to mem_cgroup_flush_stats_delayed() above the RCU read
section and allow sleeping to avoid unnecessarily performing a lot of
work without sleeping.

A lot of code paths call into workingset_refault(), so I am not
generally sure at all whether it's okay to sleep in all contexts or not.
Feedback here would be very helpful.
