mm: NUMA aware alloc_task_struct_node()
All kthreads being created from a single helper task, they all use memory from a single node for their kernel stack and task struct. This patch suite creates kthread_create_on_cpu(), adding a 'cpu' parameter to parameters already used by kthread_create(). This parameter serves in allocating memory for the new kthread on its memory node if available. Users of this new function are : ksoftirqd, kworker, migration, pktgend... This patch: Add a node parameter to alloc_task_struct(), and change its name to alloc_task_struct_node() This change is needed to allow NUMA aware kthread_create_on_cpu() Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Acked-by: David S.
