[PATCH 5/5] sched: correctly place paranioa memory barriers in synchronize_sched_expedited()
From: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck(a)linux.vnet.ibm.com> The memory barriers must be in the SMP case, not in the !SMP case. Also add a barrier after the atomic_inc() in order to ensure that other CPUs see post-synchronize_sched_expedited() actions as following the expedited grace period. Signed-off-by: Paul E.

[PATCH 2/2] mm,migration: Fix race between shift_arg_pages and rmap_walk by guaranteeing rmap_walk finds PTEs created within the temporary stack
From: Andrea Arcangeli <aarcange(a)redhat.com> Page migration requires rmap to be able to find all migration ptes created by migration. If the second rmap_walk clearing migration PTEs misses an entry, it is left dangling causing a BUG_ON to trigger during fault. For example; [ 511.201534] kernel BUG at include/... 6 May 2010 11:55
mm,compaction: Do not schedule work on other CPUs for compaction
On 05/06/2010 11:08 AM, Mel Gorman wrote: Migration normally requires a call to migrate_prep() as a preparation step. This schedules work on all CPUs for pagevecs to be drained. This makes sense for move_pages and memory hot-remove but is unnecessary for memory compaction. To avoid queueing work on mu... 10 May 2010 13:12
