SubjectRe: [PATCH] mm->rss is modified without page_table_lock held
   Date: 	Fri, 8 Dec 2000 15:36:35 -0500 (EST)
From: Mark Hahn <>

can't we just change rss to count pages?

This is what it does now.

or are we worried about rss's over ~16 TB?

If we weren't, we could just use an atomic_t for this problem.
We can't.

This patch is the only currently available solution to this problem
which is in any way acceptable.
