Subject[PATCH] vmscan: check all_unreclaimable in direct reclaim path
Date
M. Vefa Bicakci reported 2.6.35 kernel hang up when hibernation on his
32bit 3GB mem machine. (https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16771)
Also he was bisected first bad commit is below

vmscan: fix do_try_to_free_pages() return value when priority==0 reclaim failure

At first impression, this seemed very strange because the above commit only
chenged function return value and hibernate_preallocate_memory() ignore
return value of shrink_all_memory(). But it's related.

Now, page allocation from hibernation code may enter infinite loop if
the system has highmem. The reasons are that vmscan don't care enough
OOM case when oom_killer_disabled.

The problem sequence is following as.

1. hibernation
2. oom_disable
3. alloc_pages
4. do_try_to_free_pages
if (scanning_global_lru(sc) && !all_unreclaimable)
return 1;
If kswapd is not freezed, it would set zone->all_unreclaimable to 1 and then
shrink_zones maybe return true(ie, all_unreclaimable is true).
so at last, alloc_pages could go to _nopage_. If it is, it should have no problem.

This patch adds all_unreclaimable check to protect in direct reclaim path, too.
It can care of hibernation OOM case and help bailout all_unreclaimable case slightly.
