    Subject[PATCH] cpuset: mempolicy migration typo fix
    From: Paul Jackson <>

    Mistyped an ifdef CONFIG_CPUSETS - fixed.

    I doubt that anyone ever noticed. The impact of this typo was
    that if someone:
    1) was using MPOL_BIND to force off node allocations
    2) while using cpusets to constrain memory placement
    3) when that cpuset was migrating that jobs memory
    4) while the tasks in that job were actively forking
    then there was a rare chance that future allocations using
    that MPOL_BIND policy would be node local, not off node.

    Signed-off-by: Paul Jackson <>


    It builds under my cross tool setup, it runs my usual
    cpuset tests and it runs my not particularly elaborate
    cpuset memory migration test.
