SubjectRe: [patch 05/19] split LRU lists into anon & file sets
Hi Rik, Lee

I found number of scan pages calculation bug.

1. wrong calculation order

ap *= rotate_sum / (zone->recent_rotated_anon + 1);

when recent_rotated_anon = 100 and recent_rotated_file = 0,

rotate_sum / (zone->recent_rotated_anon + 1)
= 100 / 101
= 0

at that time, ap become 0.

2. wrong fraction omission

nr[l] = zone->nr_scan[l] * percent[file] / 100;

when percent is very small,
nr[l] become 0.

Test Result:
(1) $ ./hackbench 150 process 1000
(2) # sync; echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
$ dd if=tmp10G of=/dev/null
$ ./hackbench 150 process 1000
rvr-split-lru + revert patch of previous mail
(1) 83.014
(2) 717.009

rvr-split-lru + revert patch of previous mail + below patch
(1) 61.965
(2) 85.444 !!


Now, We got 1000% performance improvement against 2.6.24-rc8-mm1 :)
