* Balbir Singh <balbir@linux.vnet.ibm.com> [2009-06-15 10:09:00]:

>
> Feature: Remove the overhead associated with the root cgroup
>
> From: Balbir Singh <balbir@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
>
> Changelog v5 -> v4
> 1. Moved back to v3 logic (Daisuke and Kamezawa like that better)
> 2. Incorporated changes from Daisuke (remove list_empty() checks)
> 3. Updated documentation to reflect that limits cannot be set on root
> cgroup
>
> Changelog v4 -> v3
> 1. Rebase to mmotm 9th june 2009
> 2. Remove PageCgroupRoot, we have account LRU flags to indicate that
> we do only accounting and no reclaim.
> 3. pcg_default_flags has been used again, since PCGF_ROOT is gone,
> we set PCGF_ACCT_LRU only in mem_cgroup_add_lru_list
> 4. More LRU functions are aware of PageCgroupAcctLRU
>
> Changelog v3 -> v2
>
> 1. Rebase to mmotm 2nd June 2009
> 2. Test with some of the test cases recommended by Daisuke-San
>
> Changelog v2 -> v1
> 1. Rebase to latest mmotm
>
> This patch changes the memory cgroup and removes the overhead associated
> with accounting all pages in the root cgroup. As a side-effect, we can
> no longer set a memory hard limit in the root cgroup.
>
> A new flag to track whether the page has been accounted or not
> has been added as well. Flags are now set atomically for page_cgroup,
> pcg_default_flags is now obsolete and removed.
