Subject[PATCH 4/6] mm: kswapd: Reset kswapd_max_order and classzone_idx after reading
Date
When kswapd wakes up, it reads its order and classzone from pgdat and
calls balance_pgdat. While its awake, it potentially reclaimes at a high
order and a low classzone index. This might have been a once-off that
was not required by subsequent callers. However, because the pgdat
values were not reset, they remain artifically high while
balance_pgdat() is running and potentially kswapd enters a second
unnecessary reclaim cycle. Reset the pgdat order and classzone index
after reading.
