Subject[RFC][PATCH 0/5] PM/Hibernate: Rework memory shrinking
Date
Hi,

The following patchset is an attempt to rework the memory shrinking mechanism
used during hibernation to make room for the image. It is a work in progress
and most likely it's going to be modified, but it has been discussed recently
and I'd like to get comments on the current version.

[1/5] - disable the OOM kernel after freezing tasks (this will be dropped if
it's verified that we can avoid the OOM killing by using
__GFP_FS|__GFP_WAIT|__GFP_NORETRY|__GFP_NOWARN
in the next patches).
[2/5] - drop memory shrinking from the suspend (to RAM) code path

[3/5] - move swsusp_shrink_memory() to snapshot.c

[4/5] - rework swsusp_shrink_memory() (to use memory allocations for applying
memory pressure)

[5/5] - allocate image pages along with the shrinking.

Details are in the changelogs, please have a look and tell me what you think.

Best,
Rafael
