Subject[PATCH 36/63] mm: numa: Only trap pmd hinting faults if we would otherwise trap PTE faults
Date
Base page PMD faulting is meant to batch handle NUMA hinting faults from
PTEs. However, even is no PTE faults would ever be handled within a
range the kernel still traps PMD hinting faults. This patch avoids the
overhead.
