Subject[PATCH 6/8] Add __GFP_OTHER_NODE flag
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

Add a new __GFP_OTHER_NODE flag to tell the low level numa statistics
in zone_statistics() that an allocation is on behalf of another thread.
This way the local and remote counters can be still correct, even
when background daemons like khugepaged are changing memory
mappings.

This only affects the accounting, but I think it's worth doing that
right to avoid confusing users.

I first tried to just pass down the right node, but this required
a lot of changes to pass down this parameter and at least one
addition of a 10th argument to a 9 argument function. Using
the flag is a lot less intrusive.

Open: should be also used for migration?
