Subject[PATCH] mm: prevent NR_ISOLATE_* stats from going negative
Date
From: Rabin Vincent <rabinv@axis.com>

Commit 6afcf8ef0ca0 ("mm, compaction: fix NR_ISOLATED_* stats for pfn
based migration") moved the dec_node_page_state() call (along with the
page_is_file_cache() call) to after putback_lru_page(). But
page_is_file_cache() can change after putback_lru_page() is called, so
it should be called before putback_lru_page(), as it was before that
patch, to prevent NR_ISOLATE_* stats from going negative.

Without this fix, non-CONFIG_SMP kernels end up hanging in the
while(too_many_isolated()) { congestion_wait() } loop in
shrink_active_list() due to the negative stats.

Mem-Info:
active_anon:32567 inactive_anon:121 isolated_anon:1
active_file:6066 inactive_file:6639 isolated_file:4294967295
