I mean the below change:

--- a/mm/khugepaged.c
+++ b/mm/khugepaged.c
@@ -1195,6 +1195,9 @@ static int khugepaged_scan_pmd(struct mm_struct *mm,
goto out_unmap;
}
khugepaged_node_load[node]++;
+ if (!PageLRU(page))
+ /* Flush the page out of lru cache */
+ lru_add_drain();
if (!PageLRU(page)) {
result = SCAN_PAGE_LRU;
goto out_unmap;
If the page is not on LRU we even can't reach collapse_huge_page(), right?
