Subject[PATCH 3.10 13/18] mm/compaction: make isolate_freepages start at pageblock boundary
Date
3.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Vlastimil Babka <vbabka@suse.cz>

commit 49e068f0b73dd042c186ffa9b420a9943e90389a upstream.

The compaction freepage scanner implementation in isolate_freepages()
starts by taking the current cc->free_pfn value as the first pfn. In a
for loop, it scans from this first pfn to the end of the pageblock, and
then subtracts pageblock_nr_pages from the first pfn to obtain the first
pfn for the next for loop iteration.

This means that when cc->free_pfn starts at offset X rather than being
aligned on pageblock boundary, the scanner will start at offset X in all
scanned pageblock, ignoring potentially many free pages. Currently this
can happen when

a) zone's end pfn is not pageblock aligned, or

b) through zone->compact_cached_free_pfn with CONFIG_HOLES_IN_ZONE
enabled and a hole spanning the beginning of a pageblock

This patch fixes the problem by aligning the initial pfn in
isolate_freepages() to pageblock boundary. This also permits replacing
the end-of-pageblock alignment within the for loop with a simple
pageblock_nr_pages increment.
