SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/1] kasan: fix livelock in qlist_move_cache
Thanks for reviewing
My machine has 128G of RAM, and runs many KVM virtual machines.
libvirtd always
report "internal error: received hangup / error event on socket" under
heavy memory load.
Then I use perf top -g, qlist_move_cache consumes 100% cpu for
several minutes.
