[PATCH v4 05/11] mm: do not split a folio if it has minimum folio order requirement

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


From: Pankaj Raghav <p.raghav@xxxxxxxxxxx>

Splitting a larger folio with a base order is supported using
split_huge_page_to_list_to_order() API. However, using that API for LBS
is resulting in an NULL ptr dereference error in the writeback path [1].

Refuse to split a folio if it has minimum folio order requirement until
we can start using split_huge_page_to_list_to_order() API. Splitting the
folio can be added as a later optimization.
