SubjectRe: Q. drm/i915 shrinker, synchronize_rcu_expedited() from handlers
Thanx for the reply.

I see.
Actually on my test system for v4.11-rc8, kthreadd, kworker, kswapd and
others all stopped working due to the synchronize_rcu_expedited call
from i915_gem_shrinker_count. It is definitly a show stopper for me as
an i915 user.

It was a few weeks ago when you posted. It is a pity the fix was not
merged before v4.11 comes out. I know v4.11 will appear soon. So I'd ask
i915 developers, would you test Andrea Arcangeli's fix and release it as
v4.11.1 as soon as possible?
