[PATCH] cpuset: memory_spread_slab drop useless PF_SPREAD_PAGE check
The hook in the slab cache allocation path to handle cpuset memory spreading for tasks in cpusets with 'memory_spread_slab' enabled has a modest performance bug. The hook calls into the memory spreading handler alternate_node_alloc() if either of 'memory_spread_slab' or 'memory_spread_page' is enabled, even though the handler does nothing (albeit harmlessly) for the page case Fix - drop PF_SPREAD_PAGE from the set of flag bits that are used to trigger a call to alternate_node_alloc(). The page case is handled by separate hooks -- see the calls conditioned on cpuset_do_page_mem_spread() in mm/filemap.c Signed-off-by: Paul Jackson <pj@sgi.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
