Subject[PATCH 07/27] Check in advance if the zonelist needs additional filtering
Date
Zonelist are filtered based on nodemasks for memory policies normally.
It can be additionally filters on cpusets if they exist as well as
noting when zones are full. These simple checks are expensive enough to
be noticed in profiles. This patch checks in advance if zonelist
filtering will ever be needed. If not, then the bulk of the checks are
skipped.
