Subject[PATCH] mm/hugetlb: optimize minimum size (min_size) accounting
Date
It was observed that minimum size accounting associated with the
hugetlbfs min_size mount option may not perform optimally and as
expected. As huge pages/reservations are released from the filesystem
and given back to the global pools, they are reserved for subsequent
filesystem use as long as the subpool reserved count is less than
subpool minimum size. It does not take into account used pages
within the filesystem. The filesystem size limits are not exceeded
and this is technically not a bug. However, better behavior would
be to wait for the number of used pages/reservations associated with
the filesystem to drop below the minimum size before taking reservations
to satisfy minimum size.

An optimization is also made to the hugepage_subpool_get_pages()
routine which is called when pages/reservations are allocated. This
does not change behavior, but simply avoids the accounting if all
reservations have already been taken (subpool reserved count == 0).
