SubjectRe: [Linaro-mm-sig] [PATCHv23 12/16] mm: trigger page reclaim in alloc_contig_range() to stabilise watermarks
2012/2/23 Marek Szyprowski <m.szyprowski@samsung.com>:
> alloc_contig_range() performs memory allocation so it also should keep
> track on keeping the correct level of memory watermarks. This commit adds
> a call to *_slowpath style reclaim to grab enough pages to make sure that
> the final collection of contiguous pages from freelists will not starve
> the system.

out_of_memory() has got another param in the newest next/master tree,
out_of_memory(zonelist, gfp_mask, order, NULL, false) should be OK.
