OK, I need to play around with my mailer, sorry.

OK, next patch is using kmalloc() anyway :)

MAX_NUMNODES can be pretty large so this array cannot be on stack unfortunatly.
So I guess we have to allocate this block in vmalloc_open() and pass it in seq->private.
Adding #ifdef stuf to avoid dynamic allocations for small MAX_NUMNODES would be overkill.

Yes, my bad.

Thanks very much Andrew for this review.

Here is an updated patch.

It now allocates the array in vmalloc_open().
If this allocation fails, we just proceed and dont provide NUMA information.

I included missing documentation for /proc/vmallocinfo as well.


[PATCH] vmallocinfo: Add NUMA informations

Christoph recently added /proc/vmallocinfo file to get information about vmalloc allocations.

This patch adds NUMA specific information, giving number of pages allocated on each memory node.

This should help to check that vmalloc() is able to respect NUMA policies.

Example of output on a four nodes machine (one cpu per node)

1) network hash tables are evenly spreaded on four nodes (OK)
(Same point for inodes and dentries hash tables)
2) iptables tables (x_tables) are correctly allocated on each cpu node (OK).
3) sys_swapon() allocates its memory from one node only.
4) each loaded module is using memory on one node.

Sysadmins could tune their setup to change points 3) and 4) if necessary.
