Subject: [PATCH] Move memory controller allocations to their own slabs (v2)
Date: Tue, 11 Mar 2008 11:48:36 +0530	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20080311061836.6664.5072.sendpatchset@localhost.localdomain> (raw)



Move the memory controller data structure page_cgroup to its own slab cache.
It saves space on the system, allocations are not necessarily pushed to order
of 2 and should provide performance benefits. Users who disable the memory
controller can also double check that the memory controller is not allocating
page_cgroup's.
