Subject[PATCH 4.15 062/105] mm/vmscan: wake up flushers for legacy cgroups too
Date
4.15-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Andrey Ryabinin <aryabinin@virtuozzo.com>

commit 1c610d5f93c709df56787f50b3576704ac271826 upstream.

Commit 726d061fbd36 ("mm: vmscan: kick flushers when we encounter dirty
pages on the LRU") added flusher invocation to shrink_inactive_list()
when many dirty pages on the LRU are encountered.

However, shrink_inactive_list() doesn't wake up flushers for legacy
cgroup reclaim, so the next commit bbef938429f5 ("mm: vmscan: remove old
flusher wakeup from direct reclaim path") removed the only source of
flusher's wake up in legacy mem cgroup reclaim path.

This leads to premature OOM if there is too many dirty pages in cgroup:
# mkdir /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/test
# echo $$ > /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/test/tasks
# echo 50M > /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/test/memory.limit_in_bytes
# dd if=/dev/zero of=tmp_file bs=1M count=100
Killed

dd invoked oom-killer: gfp_mask=0x14000c0(GFP_KERNEL), nodemask=(null), order=0, oom_score_adj=0

Wake up flushers in legacy cgroup reclaim too.
