Subjectmm, compaction: fix build errors with kcompactd
The newly added kcompactd code introduces multiple build errors:

include/linux/compaction.h:91:12: error: 'kcompactd_run' defined but not used [-Werror=unused-function]
mm/compaction.c:1953:2: error: implicit declaration of function 'hotcpu_notifier' [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]

This marks the new empty wrapper functions as 'inline' to avoid unused-function warnings,
and includes linux/cpu.h to get the hotcpu_notifier declaration.

Fixes: 8364acdfa45a ("mm, compaction: introduce kcompactd")
Signed-off-by: Arnd Bergmann <>
I stumbled over this while trying out the mmots patches today for an unrelated reason.
