mm, vmscan: add cond_resched() into shrink_node_memcg()
Boris Zhmurov has reported RCU stalls during the kswapd reclaim: INFO: rcu_sched detected stalls on CPUs/tasks: 23-...: (22 ticks this GP) idle=92f/140000000000000/0 softirq=2638404/2638404 fqs=23 (detected by 4, t=6389 jiffies, g=786259, c=786258, q=42115) Task dump for CPU 23: kswapd1 R running task 0 148 2 0x00000008 Call Trace: shrink_node+0xd2/0x2f0 kswapd+0x2cb/0x6a0 mem_cgroup_shrink_node+0x160/0x160 kthread+0xbd/0xe0 __switch_to+0x1fa/0x5c0 ret_from_fork+0x1f/0x40 kthread_create_on_node+0x180/0x180 a closer code inspection has shown that we might indeed miss all the scheduling points in the reclaim path if no pages can be isolated from the LRU list. This is a pathological case but other reports from Donald Buczek have shown that we might indeed hit such a path: clusterd-989 [009] .... 118023.654491: mm_vmscan_direct_reclaim_end: nr_reclaimed=193 kswapd1-86 [001] dN.. 118023.987475: mm_vmscan_lru_isolate: isolate_mode=0 classzone=0 order=0 nr_requested=32 nr_scanned=4239830 nr_taken=0 file=1 kswapd1-86 [001] dN.. 118024.320968: mm_vmscan_lru_isolate: isolate_mode=0 classzone=0 order=0 nr_requested=32 nr_scanned=4239844 nr_taken=0 file=1 kswapd1-86 [001] dN.. 118024.654375: mm_vmscan_lru_isolate: isolate_mode=0 classzone=0 order=0 nr_requested=32 nr_scanned=4239858 nr_taken=0 file=1 kswapd1-86 [001] dN.. 118024.987036: mm_vmscan_lru_isolate: isolate_mode=0 classzone=0 order=0 nr_requested=32 nr_scanned=4239872 nr_taken=0 file=1 kswapd1-86 [001] dN.. 118025.319651: mm_vmscan_lru_isolate: isolate_mode=0 classzone=0 order=0 nr_requested=32 nr_scanned=4239886 nr_taken=0 file=1 kswapd1-86 [001] dN.. 118025.652248: mm_vmscan_lru_isolate: isolate_mode=0 classzone=0 order=0 nr_requested=32 nr_scanned=4239900 nr_taken=0 file=1 kswapd1-86 [001] dN.. 118025.984870: mm_vmscan_lru_isolate: isolate_mode=0 classzone=0 order=0 nr_requested=32 nr_scanned=4239914 nr_taken=0 file=1 [...] kswapd1-86 [001] dN.. 118084.274403: mm_vmscan_lru_isolate: isolate_mode=0 classzone=0 order=0 nr_requested=32 nr_scanned=4241133 nr_taken=0 file=1 this is minute long snapshot which didn't take a single page from the LRU. It is not entirely clear why only 1303 pages have been scanned during that time (maybe there was a heavy IRQ activity interfering). In any case it looks like we can really hit long periods without scheduling on non preemptive kernels so an explicit cond_resched() in shrink_node_memcg which is independent on the reclaim operation is due.
