mm: mark the correct zone as full when scanning zonelists
The iterator for_each_zone_zonelist() uses a struct zoneref *z cursor when scanning zonelists to keep track of where in the zonelist it is. The zoneref that is returned corresponds to the the next zone that is to be scanned, not the current one. It was intended to be treated as an opaque list. When the page allocator is scanning a zonelist, it marks elements in the zonelist corresponding to zones that are temporarily full. As the zonelist is being updated, it uses the cursor here; if (NUMA_BUILD) zlc_mark_zone_full(zonelist, z); This is intended to prevent rescanning in the near future but the zoneref cursor does not correspond to the zone that has been found to be full. This is an easy misunderstanding to make so this patch corrects the problem by changing zoneref cursor to be the current zone being scanned instead of the next one.
