    Subject[PATCH 1/2] mm: vmscan: Correct use of pgdat_balanced in sleeping_prematurely
    From: Johannes Weiner <>

    Johannes Weiner poined out that the logic in commit [1741c877: mm:
    kswapd: keep kswapd awake for high-order allocations until a percentage
    of the node is balanced] is backwards. Instead of allowing kswapd to go
    to sleep when balancing for high order allocations, it keeps it kswapd
    running uselessly.
