Subject[PATCH 5.10 578/599] mm/memcontrol: return 1 from cgroup.memory __setup() handler
Date
From: Randy Dunlap <rdunlap@infradead.org>

commit 460a79e18842caca6fa0c415de4a3ac1e671ac50 upstream.

__setup() handlers should return 1 if the command line option is handled
and 0 if not (or maybe never return 0; it just pollutes init's
environment).

The only reason that this particular __setup handler does not pollute
init's environment is that the setup string contains a '.', as in
"cgroup.memory". This causes init/main.c::unknown_boottoption() to
consider it to be an "Unused module parameter" and ignore it. (This is
for parsing of loadable module parameters any time after kernel init.)
Otherwise the string "cgroup.memory=whatever" would be added to init's
environment strings.

Instead of relying on this '.' quirk, just return 1 to indicate that the
boot option has been handled.

Note that there is no warning message if someone enters:
cgroup.memory=anything_invalid
