mm: consider the entire user address space during node migration
Use mm->task_size instead of TASK_SIZE to ensure that the entire user address space is migrated. mm->task_size is independent of the calling task context. TASK SIZE may be dependant on the address space size of the calling process. Usage of TASK_SIZE can lead to partial address space migration if the calling process was 32 bit and the migrating process was 64 bit. Here is the test script used on 64 system with a 32 bit echo process: mount -t cgroup none /cgroup -o cpuset cd /cgroup mkdir 0 echo 1 > 0/cpuset.cpus echo 0 > 0/cpuset.mems echo 1 > 0/cpuset.memory_migrate mkdir 1 echo 1 > 1/cpuset.cpus echo 1 > 1/cpuset.mems echo 1 > 1/cpuset.memory_migrate echo $$ > 0/tasks 64_bit_process & pid=$! echo $pid > 1/tasks # This does not migrate all process pages without # this patch. If 64 bit echo is used or this patch is # applied, then the full address space of $pid is # migrated. To check memory migration, I watched: grep MemUsed /sys/devices/system/node/node*/meminfo Signed-off-by: Greg Thelen <gthelen@google.com> Acked-by: Christoph Lameter <cl@linux-foundation.org> Reviewed-by: KOSAKI Motohiro <kosaki.motohiro@jp.fujitsu.com> Cc: Mel Gorman <mel@csn.ul.ie> Cc: KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu@jp.fujitsu.com> Cc: Daisuke Nishimura <nishimura@mxp.nes.nec.co.jp> Cc: Balbir Singh <balbir@in.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
