vmscan: fix do_try_to_free_pages() return value when priority==0 reclaim failure
Greg Thelen reported recent Johannes's stack diet patch makes kernel hang. His test is following. mount -t cgroup none /cgroups -o memory mkdir /cgroups/cg1 echo $$ > /cgroups/cg1/tasks dd bs=1024 count=1024 if=/dev/null of=/data/foo echo $$ > /cgroups/tasks echo 1 > /cgroups/cg1/memory.force_empty Actually, This OOM hard to try logic have been corrupted since following two years old patch. commit a41f24ea9fd6169b147c53c2392e2887cc1d9247 Author: Nishanth Aravamudan <nacc@us.ibm.com> Date: Tue Apr 29 00:58:25 2008 -0700 page allocator: smarter retry of costly-order allocations Original intention was "return success if the system have shrinkable zones though priority==0 reclaim was failure". But the above patch changed to "return nr_reclaimed if .....". Oh, That forgot nr_reclaimed may be 0 if priority==0 reclaim failure. And Johannes's patch 0aeb2339e54e ("vmscan: remove all_unreclaimable scan control") made it more corrupt. Originally, priority==0 reclaim failure on memcg return 0, but this patch changed to return 1. It totally confused memcg. This patch fixes it completely.
