Subject[PATCH v18 30/32] mm: Drop use of test_and_set_skip in favor of just setting skip
Date
From: Alexander Duyck <alexander.h.duyck@linux.intel.com>

The only user of test_and_set_skip was isolate_migratepages_block and it
was using it after a call that was testing and clearing the LRU flag. As
such it really didn't need to be behind the LRU lock anymore as it wasn't
really fulfilling its purpose.

Since it is only possible to be able to test and set the skip flag if we
were able to obtain the LRU bit for the first page in the pageblock the
use of the test_and_set_skip becomes redundant as the LRU flag now becomes
the item that limits us to only one thread being able to perform the
operation and there being no need for a test_and_set operation.

With that being the case we can simply drop the bit and instead directly
just call the set_pageblock_skip function if the page we are working on is
the valid_page at the start of the pageblock. Then any other threads that
enter this pageblock should see the skip bit set on the first valid page in
the pageblock.

Since we have dropped the late abort case we can drop the code that was
clearing the LRU flag and calling page_put since the abort case will now
not be holding a reference to a page now.
