[PATCH v2 2/5] mm/hugetlb: use nth_page() in place of direct struct page manipulation.

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


From: Zi Yan <ziy@xxxxxxxxxx>

When dealing with hugetlb pages, manipulating struct page pointers
directly can get to wrong struct page, since struct page is not guaranteed
to be contiguous on SPARSEMEM without VMEMMAP. Use nth_page() to handle
it properly.
