Subject[RFC PATCH v3 0/9] get rid of GFP_ZONE_TABLE/BAD
Date
From: Huaisheng Ye <yehs1@lenovo.com>

Changes since v2: [2]
* According to Christoph's suggestion, rebase patches to current
mainline from v4.16.

* Follow the advice of Matthew, create macros like GFP_NORMAL and
GFP_NORMAL_UNMOVABLE to clear bottom 3 and 4 bits of GFP bitmask.

* Delete some patches because of kernel updating.

Tested by Lenovo Thinksystem server.

Replace GFP_ZONE_TABLE and GFP_ZONE_BAD with encoded zone number.

Delete ___GFP_DMA, ___GFP_HIGHMEM and ___GFP_DMA32 from GFP bitmasks,
the bottom three bits of GFP mask is reserved for storing encoded
zone number.

The encoding method is XOR. Get zone number from enum zone_type,
then encode the number with ZONE_NORMAL by XOR operation.
The goal is to make sure ZONE_NORMAL can be encoded to zero. So,
the compatibility can be guaranteed, such as GFP_KERNEL and GFP_ATOMIC
can be used as before.

Reserve __GFP_MOVABLE in bit 3, so that it can continue to be used as
a flag. Same as before, __GFP_MOVABLE respresents movable migrate type
for ZONE_DMA, ZONE_DMA32, and ZONE_NORMAL. But when it is enabled with
__GFP_HIGHMEM, ZONE_MOVABLE shall be returned instead of ZONE_HIGHMEM.
__GFP_ZONE_MOVABLE is created to realize it.

With this patch, just enabling __GFP_MOVABLE and __GFP_HIGHMEM is not
enough to get ZONE_MOVABLE from gfp_zone. All callers should use
GFP_HIGHUSER_MOVABLE or __GFP_ZONE_MOVABLE directly to achieve that.

Decode zone number directly from bottom three bits of flags in gfp_zone.
The theory of encoding and decoding is,
A ^ B ^ B = A

Changes since v1:[1]

* Create __GFP_ZONE_MOVABLE and modify GFP_HIGHUSER_MOVABLE to help
callers to get ZONE_MOVABLE. Try to create __GFP_ZONE_MASK to mask
lowest 3 bits of GFP bitmasks.

* Modify some callers' gfp flag to update usage of address zone
modifiers.

* Modify inline function gfp_zone to get better performance according
to Matthew's suggestion.
