[Linaro-mm-sig] [PATCH 4/9] mm: MIGRATE_CMA migration type added

Fri Aug 12 10:58:26 UTC 2011


From: Michal Nazarewicz <m.nazarewicz at samsung.com>

The MIGRATE_CMA migration type has two main characteristics:
(i) only movable pages can be allocated from MIGRATE_CMA
pageblocks and (ii) page allocator will never change migration
type of MIGRATE_CMA pageblocks.

This guarantees that page in a MIGRATE_CMA page block can
always be migrated somewhere else (unless there's no memory left
in the system).

It is designed to be used with Contiguous Memory Allocator
(CMA) for allocating big chunks (eg. 10MiB) of physically
contiguous memory.  Once driver requests contiguous memory,
CMA will migrate pages from MIGRATE_CMA pageblocks.

To minimise number of migrations, MIGRATE_CMA migration type
is the last type tried when page allocator falls back to other
migration types then requested.
