Subject[PATCH 4.9 034/107] zswap: re-check zswap_is_full() after do zswap_shrink()
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Li Wang <liwang@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit 16e536ef47f567289a5699abee9ff7bb304bc12d ]

/sys/../zswap/stored_pages keeps rising in a zswap test with
"zswap.max_pool_percent=0" parameter. But it should not compress or
store pages any more since there is no space in the compressed pool.

Reproduce steps:
1. Boot kernel with "zswap.enabled=1"
2. Set the max_pool_percent to 0
# echo 0 > /sys/module/zswap/parameters/max_pool_percent
3. Do memory stress test to see if some pages have been compressed
# stress --vm 1 --vm-bytes $mem_available"M" --timeout 60s
4. Watching the 'stored_pages' number increasing or not

The root cause is:

When zswap_max_pool_percent is set to 0 via kernel parameter,
zswap_is_full() will always return true due to zswap_shrink(). But if
the shinking is able to reclain a page successfully the code then
proceeds to compressing/storing another page, so the value of
stored_pages will keep changing.

To solve the issue, this patch adds a zswap_is_full() check again after
zswap_shrink() to make sure it's now under the max_pool_percent, and to
not compress/store if we reached the limit.
