Subject: [RFC PATCH 12/24] mm/hugetlb: Defer freeing of hugetlb pages
Date: Tue, 15 Sep 2020 20:59:35 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200915125947.26204-13-songmuchun@bytedance.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200915125947.26204-1-songmuchun@bytedance.com>

In the subsequent patch, we will allocate the vmemmap pages when free
huge pages. But update_and_free_page() is be called from a non-task
context(and hold hugetlb_lock), we can defer the actual freeing in
a workqueue to prevent use GFP_ATOMIC to allocate the vmemmap pages.
