Subject[PATCH 11/14] vmscan: Update isolated page counters outside of main path in shrink_inactive_list()
Date
When shrink_inactive_list() isolates pages, it updates a number of
counters using temporary variables to gather them. These consume stack
and it's in the main path that calls ->writepage(). This patch moves the
accounting updates outside of the main path to reduce stack usage.
