SubjectRe: [PATCH] page coloring for 2.4.18 kernel
Date
Hello Jason,

I would gave page_coloring a go on my Athlon II (0.18µm, L1 128K, L2 512K)
with 2.4.19-pre5-vm33-preempt+lock-break.

Little rejection in kernel/ksyms.c.rej.

EXPORT_SYMBOL(tasklist_lock);
EXPORT_SYMBOL(pidhash);

+ #ifdef CONFIG_PAGE_COLORING_MODULE
+ extern unsigned int page_miss_count;
+ extern unsigned int page_hit_count;
+ extern unsigned int page_alloc_count;
+ extern unsigned int page_colors;
+ extern struct list_head *page_color_table;
+ void page_color_start(void);
+ void page_color_stop(void);

+ EXPORT_SYMBOL_NOVERS(page_color_table);
+ EXPORT_SYMBOL_NOVERS(page_color_start);
+ EXPORT_SYMBOL_NOVERS(page_color_stop);
+ #endif

No problem to add by hand but later on I get this:

mm/mm.o: In function `alloc_pages_by_color':
mm/mm.o(.text+0xb64a): undefined reference to `BAD_RANGE'
mm/mm.o(.text+0xb6e6): undefined reference to `BAD_RANGE'
mm/mm.o(.text+0xb760): undefined reference to `BAD_RANGE'
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 1

To solve this I have to move the definition of BAD_RANGE in mm/page_alloc.c
somewhat more to the beginning of the file.
