Subject: [PATCHv2, RFC 00/30] Transparent huge page cache
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Thursday 14th March 2013 17:50:05 UTC (over 3 years ago)
From: "Kirill A. Shutemov" 

Here's the second version of the patchset.

The intend of the work is get code ready to enable transparent huge page
cache for the most simple fs -- ramfs.

We have read()/write()/mmap() functionality now. Still plenty work ahead.

Any feedback is welcome.

Changes since v1:
 - mmap();
 - fix add_to_page_cache_locked() and delete_from_page_cache();
 - introduce mapping_can_have_hugepages();
 - call split_huge_page() only for head page in filemap_fault();
 - wait_split_huge_page(): serialize over i_mmap_mutex too;
 - lru_add_page_tail: avoid PageUnevictable on active/inactive lru lists;
 - fix off-by-one in zero_huge_user_segment();
 - THP_WRITE_ALLOC/THP_WRITE_FAILED counters;

TODO:
 - memcg accounting has not yet evaluated;
 - collapse;
 - migration (?);
 - stats, knobs, etc.;
 - tmpfs/shmem enabling;
