This alone is not going to help.
The problem is that we do skip the vma early in queue_pages_test_walk() in
case MPOL_MF_MOVE and MPOL_MF_MOVE_ALL are not set.
/* queue pages from current vma */
if (flags & (MPOL_MF_MOVE | MPOL_MF_MOVE_ALL))
So, we skip the vma and keep going.
Before ("77bf45e78050: mempolicy: do not try to queue pages from !vma_migratable()"),
queue_pages_test_walk() would not have skipped the vma in case we had MPOL_MF_STRICT
or MPOL_MF_MOVE | MPOL_MF_MOVE_ALL.
I did not give it a lot of thought, but it seems to me that we might need to reach
queue_pages_to_pte_range() in order to see whether the page is in the required node
or not by calling queue_pages_required(), and if it is not, check for
MPOL_MF_MOVE | MPOL_MF_MOVE_ALL like the above patch does, so we would be able to
That would imply that we would need to re-add MPOL_MF_STRICT in queue_pages_test_walk().
