    Subject[PATCH 4/5] mm: kswapd: Reset kswapd_max_order and classzone_idx after reading
    Date
    When kswapd wakes up, it reads its order and classzone from pgdat and
    calls balance_pgdat. While its awake, it potentially reclaimes as a high
    order and a low classzone index. This might have been a once-off that
    was not required by subsequent callers. However, because the pgdat
    values were not reset, they remain artifically high while
    balance_pgdat() is running and potentially kswapd enters a second
    unnecessary reclaim cycle. Reset the pgdat order and classzone index
    after reading.
