[PATCH v2 0/7] Split a folio to any lower order folios

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


From: Zi Yan <ziy@xxxxxxxxxx>

Hi all,

File folio supports any order and people would like to support flexible orders
for anonymous folio[1] too. Currently, split_huge_page() only splits a huge
page to order-0 pages, but splitting to orders higher than 0 is also useful.
This patchset adds support for splitting a huge page to any lower order pages
and uses it during folio truncate operations.

The patchset is on top of mm-everything-2023-03-27-21-20.

Changelog from v1
1. Changed split_page_memcg() and split_page_owner() parameter to use order
2. Used folio_test_pmd_mappable() in place of the equivalent code


* Patch 1 changes split_page_memcg() to use order instead of nr_pages
* Patch 2 changes split_page_owner() to use order instead of nr_pages
* Patch 3 and 4 add new_order parameter split_page_memcg() and
  split_page_owner() and prepare for upcoming changes.
* Patch 5 adds split_huge_page_to_list_to_order() to split a huge page
  to any lower order. The original split_huge_page_to_list() calls
  split_huge_page_to_list_to_order() with new_order = 0.
* Patch 6 uses split_huge_page_to_list_to_order() in large pagecache folio
  truncation instead of split the large folio all the way down to order-0.
* Patch 7 adds a test API to debugfs and test cases in
  split_huge_page_test selftests.

Comments and/or suggestions are welcome.
