mm/vmscan: wake up flushers for legacy cgroups too
Commit 726d061fbd36 ("mm: vmscan: kick flushers when we encounter dirty pages on the LRU") added flusher invocation to shrink_inactive_list() when many dirty pages on the LRU are encountered. However, shrink_inactive_list() doesn't wake up flushers for legacy cgroup reclaim, so the next commit bbef938429f5 ("mm: vmscan: remove old flusher wakeup from direct reclaim path") removed the only source of flusher's wake up in legacy mem cgroup reclaim path. This leads to premature OOM if there is too many dirty pages in cgroup: # mkdir /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/test # echo $$ > /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/test/tasks # echo 50M > /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/test/memory.limit_in_bytes # dd if=/dev/zero of=tmp_file bs=1M count=100 Killed dd invoked oom-killer: gfp_mask=0x14000c0(GFP_KERNEL), nodemask=(null), order=0, oom_score_adj=0 Call Trace: dump_stack+0x46/0x65 dump_header+0x6b/0x2ac oom_kill_process+0x21c/0x4a0 out_of_memory+0x2a5/0x4b0 mem_cgroup_out_of_memory+0x3b/0x60 mem_cgroup_oom_synchronize+0x2ed/0x330 pagefault_out_of_memory+0x24/0x54 __do_page_fault+0x521/0x540 page_fault+0x45/0x50 Task in /test killed as a result of limit of /test memory: usage 51200kB, limit 51200kB, failcnt 73 memory+swap: usage 51200kB, limit 9007199254740988kB, failcnt 0 kmem: usage 296kB, limit 9007199254740988kB, failcnt 0 Memory cgroup stats for /test: cache:49632KB rss:1056KB rss_huge:0KB shmem:0KB mapped_file:0KB dirty:49500KB writeback:0KB swap:0KB inactive_anon:0KB active_anon:1168KB inactive_file:24760KB active_file:24960KB unevictable:0KB Memory cgroup out of memory: Kill process 3861 (bash) score 88 or sacrifice child Killed process 3876 (dd) total-vm:8484kB, anon-rss:1052kB, file-rss:1720kB, shmem-rss:0kB oom_reaper: reaped process 3876 (dd), now anon-rss:0kB, file-rss:0kB, shmem-rss:0kB Wake up flushers in legacy cgroup reclaim too.
