Subject: [PATCH] hugetlb: vmstat events for huge page allocations
Allocating huge pages directly from the buddy allocator is not guaranteed to succeed. Success depends on several factors (such as the amount of physical memory available and the level of fragmentation). With the addition of dynamic hugetlb pool resizing, allocations can occur much more frequently. For these reasons it is desirable to keep track of huge page allocation successes and failures. Add two new vmstat entries to track huge page allocations that succeed and fail. The presence of the two entries is contingent upon CONFIG_HUGETLB_PAGE being enabled.
