Subject[ 10/40] mm: vmscan: fix force-scanning small targets without swap
Date
From: Greg KH <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

3.0-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Johannes Weiner <jweiner@redhat.com>

commit a4d3e9e76337059406fcf3ead288c0df22a790e9 upstream.

Stable note: Not tracked in Bugzilla. This patch augments an earlier commit
that avoids scanning priority being artificially raised. The older
fix was particularly important for small memcgs to avoid calling
wait_iff_congested() unnecessarily.

Without swap, anonymous pages are not scanned. As such, they should not
count when considering force-scanning a small target if there is no swap.

Otherwise, targets are not force-scanned even when their effective scan
number is zero and the other conditions--kswapd/memcg--apply.

This fixes 246e87a93934 ("memcg: fix get_scan_count() for small
targets").
