Hrm. This may be problematic, as it's not just TTM code, but some of
the TTM logic integrated into a page-pool implementation I wrote based
on logic from the ION code (which was GPL-2.0 before it was dropped).
So I don't think I can just make it MIT. Any extra context on the
need for MIT, or suggestions on how to best resolve this?

I can do that, but am curious as to the benefit? We are mostly using
count where we already have to take the pool->lock anyway, and this
drm_page_pool_get_size() is only used for debugfs output so far, so I
don't expect it to be a hot path.

This is a carryover from the ION page pool implementation:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/drivers/staging/android/ion/ion_page_pool.c?h=v5.10#n28

My sense is it helps with the vmstat/meminfo accounting so folks can
see the cached pages are shrinkable/freeable. This maybe falls under
other dmabuf accounting/stats discussions, so I'm happy to remove it
for now, or let the drivers using the shared page pool logic handle
the accounting themselves?

Yea, that cleans a number of things up nicely. Thank you!

Yea, it felt cleaner at the time this way, but I think I will need to
switch to an embedded object in order to resolve the memory usage
issue you pointed out with growing the ttm_pool_dma, so thank you for
the suggestion!

I guess if we've already pruned ourself from the pool list, then your
right, we can't race with the shrinker and it's maybe not necessary.
But it also seems easier to consistently follow the locking rules in a
very unlikely path rather than leaning on subtlety. Either way, I
think this becomes moot if I make the improvements you suggest to
drm_page_pool_remove().

Sounds good!

Thanks so much for your review and feedback! I'll try to get some of
the easy suggestions integrated, and will have to figure out what to
do about the re-licensing request.

thanks
