Subject[PATCH 5/5] Light fragmentation avoidance without usemap: 005_drainpercpu
Date
Per-cpu pages can accidentally cause fragmentation because they are free, but
pinned pages in an otherwise contiguous block. When this patch is applied,
the per-cpu caches are drained after the direct-reclaim is entered if the
requested order is greater than 3. It simply reuses the code used by suspend
and hotplug and only is triggered when anti-defragmentation is enabled.
