Subject[PATCH v2]: Hibernation: lower/better control the amount of pages used for buffering
From
Date
Hi Rafael,

Here is a hopefully better version of the patch.

---------------------------------------
Hibernation/thaw improvements:
1. Set maximum number of pages for read buffering consistently, instead
of inadvertently depending on the size of the sector type.

2. Use at most one quarter of free pages for read buffering.

3. Require that number of free pages when writing the image never falls
below half of total free pages available.
