Subject[PATCH 14/14] page-replace-kswapd-incmin.patch
Date

From: Nick Piggin <npiggin@suse.de>

Explicitly teach kswapd about the incremental min logic instead of just scanning
all zones under the first low zone. This should keep more even pressure applied
on the zones.

The new shrink_zone() logic exposes the very worst side of the current
balance_pgdat() function. Without this patch reclaim is limited to ZONE_DMA.
