[RFC PATCH 5/7] vmscan: memcg: sleep when flushing stats during reclaim

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


Memory reclaim should be a sleepable context. Allow sleeping when
flushing memcg stats to avoid unnecessarily performing a lot of work
without sleeping. This can slow down reclaim code if flushing stats is
taking too long, but there is already multiple cond_resched()'s in
reclaim code.
