Subject[PATCH 02/11] mm: compaction: Use synchronous compaction for /proc/sys/vm/compact_memory
Date
When asynchronous compaction was introduced, the
/proc/sys/vm/compact_memory handler should have been updated to always
use synchronous compaction. This did not happen so this patch addresses
it. The assumption is if a user writes to /proc/sys/vm/compact_memory,
they are willing for that process to stall.
