Subject[27/35] PM / Hibernate: Avoid hitting OOM during preallocation of memory
2.6.33-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: "Rafael J. Wysocki" <rjw@sisk.pl>

commit 6715045ddc7472a22be5e49d4047d2d89b391f45 upstream.

There is a problem in hibernate_preallocate_memory() that it calls
preallocate_image_memory() with an argument that may be greater than
the total number of available non-highmem memory pages. If that's
the case, the OOM condition is guaranteed to trigger, which in turn
can cause significant slowdown to occur during hibernation.

To avoid that, make preallocate_image_memory() adjust its argument
before calling preallocate_image_pages(), so that the total number of
saveable non-highem pages left is not less than the minimum size of
a hibernation image. Change hibernate_preallocate_memory() to try to
allocate from highmem if the number of pages allocated by
preallocate_image_memory() is too low.

Modify free_unnecessary_pages() to take all possible memory
allocation patterns into account.
