Subject: [PATCH 24/29] nfs: remove mempools
Date: Wed, 21 Feb 2007 15:43:28 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070221144843.894502000@taijtu.programming.kicks-ass.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20070221144304.512721000@taijtu.programming.kicks-ass.net>

[-- Attachment #1: nfs-no-mempool.patch --]
[-- Type: text/plain, Size: 5239 bytes --]

With the introduction of the shared dirty page accounting in .19, NFS should
not be able to surpise the VM with all dirty pages. Thus it should always be
able to free some memory. Hence no more need for mempools.
