Subject[PATCH 1/2] Revert "mm: don't reclaim inodes with many attached pages"
Date
From: Dave Chinner <dchinner@redhat.com>

This reverts commit a76cf1a474d7dbcd9336b5f5afb0162baa142cf0.

This change causes serious changes to page cache and inode cache
behaviour and balance, resulting in major performance regressions
when combining worklaods such as large file copies and kernel
compiles.

https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=202441

This change is a hack to work around the problems introduced by
changing how agressive shrinkers are on small caches in commit
172b06c32b94 ("mm: slowly shrink slabs with a relatively small
number of objects"). It creates more problems than it solves, wasn't
adequately reviewed or tested, so it needs to be reverted.
