Subject[PATCH 14/34] mm: zone_reclaim: make isolate_lru_page() filter-aware
Date
From: Minchan Kim <minchan.kim@gmail.com>

commit f80c0673610e36ae29d63e3297175e22f70dde5f upstream.

Stable note: Not tracked in Bugzilla. THP and compaction disrupt the LRU list
leading to poor reclaim decisions which has a variable performance
impact.

In __zone_reclaim case, we don't want to shrink mapped page. Nonetheless,
we have isolated mapped page and re-add it into LRU's head. It's
unnecessary CPU overhead and makes LRU churning.

Of course, when we isolate the page, the page might be mapped but when we
try to migrate the page, the page would be not mapped. So it could be
migrated. But race is rare and although it happens, it's no big deal.
