Subject[PATCH 0/2] shmem, drm/i915: Mark pinned shmemfs pages as unevictable
Date
When a graphics heavy application is running, i915 driver may pin a lot
of shmemfs pages and vmscan slows down significantly by scanning these
pinned pages. This patch is an alternative to the patch by Chris Wilson
[1]. As i915 driver pins all pages in an address space, marking an
address space as unevictable is sufficient to solve this issue.
