SubjectFW: where has all the memory gone?
> Im running RH 7.1. I also have FreeSWAN 1.91 and I am making
> modifications to the FS stuff. I have a driver for a card. I am
> extending
> the driver and manage to do a couple of calls without any problems.
> In another routine when I kmalloc 152 bytes of memory the call blocks
> When I issue the kmalloc call with GFP_ATOMIC rather than GFP_KERNEL I
> get
> the memory and see IPsec packets received and txd as expected. I issue
> the command "less /proc/meminfo" and it indicates that I have 60 Megs
> MemFree.
> Id appreciate your help to understand why the calls block and what
> I can change/adjust rather that use the GFP_ATOMIC.
> Thanks in advance,
> Adam
