hugetlb: derive huge pages nodes allowed from task mempolicy
This patch derives a "nodes_allowed" node mask from the numa mempolicy of the task modifying the number of persistent huge pages to control the allocation, freeing and adjusting of surplus huge pages when the pool page count is modified via the new sysctl or sysfs attribute "nr_hugepages_mempolicy". The nodes_allowed mask is derived as follows: * For "default" [NULL] task mempolicy, a NULL nodemask_t pointer is produced. This will cause the hugetlb subsystem to use node_online_map as the "nodes_allowed". This preserves the behavior before this patch. * For "preferred" mempolicy, including explicit local allocation, a nodemask with the single preferred node will be produced. "local" policy will NOT track any internode migrations of the task adjusting nr_hugepages. * For "bind" and "interleave" policy, the mempolicy's nodemask will be used. * Other than to inform the construction of the nodes_allowed node mask, the actual mempolicy mode is ignored. That is, all modes behave like interleave over the resulting nodes_allowed mask with no "fallback". See the updated documentation [next patch] for more information about the implications of this patch. Examples: Starting with: Node 0 HugePages_Total: 0 Node 1 HugePages_Total: 0 Node 2 HugePages_Total: 0 Node 3 HugePages_Total: 0 Default behavior [with or without this patch] balances persistent hugepage allocation across nodes [with sufficient contiguous memory]: sysctl vm.nr_hugepages[_mempolicy]=32 yields: Node 0 HugePages_Total: 8 Node 1 HugePages_Total: 8 Node 2 HugePages_Total: 8 Node 3 HugePages_Total: 8 Of course, we only have nr_hugepages_mempolicy with the patch, but with default mempolicy, nr_hugepages_mempolicy behaves the same as nr_hugepages. Applying mempolicy--e.g., with numactl [using '-m' a.k.a. '--membind' because it allows multiple nodes to be specified and it's easy to type]--we can allocate huge pages on individual nodes or sets of nodes. So, starting from the condition above, with 8 huge pages per node, add 8 more to node 2 using: numactl -m 2 sysctl vm.nr_hugepages_mempolicy=40 This yields: Node 0 HugePages_Total: 8 Node 1 HugePages_Total: 8 Node 2 HugePages_Total: 16 Node 3 HugePages_Total: 8 The incremental 8 huge pages were restricted to node 2 by the specified mempolicy. Similarly, we can use mempolicy to free persistent huge pages from specified nodes: numactl -m 0,1 sysctl vm.nr_hugepages_mempolicy=32 yields: Node 0 HugePages_Total: 4 Node 1 HugePages_Total: 4 Node 2 HugePages_Total: 16 Node 3 HugePages_Total: 8 The 8 huge pages freed were balanced over nodes 0 and 1.
