Subject[PATCH 3/4] vmscan: zone_reclaim use may_swap
Date
Subject: [PATCH] vmscan: zone_reclaim use may_swap

Documentation/sysctl/vm.txt says

zone_reclaim_mode:

Zone_reclaim_mode allows someone to set more or less aggressive approaches to
reclaim memory when a zone runs out of memory. If it is set to zero then no
zone reclaim occurs. Allocations will be satisfied from other zones / nodes
in the system.

This is value ORed together of

1 = Zone reclaim on
2 = Zone reclaim writes dirty pages out
4 = Zone reclaim swaps pages


So, "(zone_reclaim_mode & RECLAIM_SWAP) == 0" mean we don't want to reclaim
swap-backed pages. not mapped file.

Thus, may_swap is better than may_unmap.
