The following patchset is an attempt to rework the memory shrinking mechanism
used during hibernation to make room for the image. It is a work in progress
and most likely it's going to be modified, but it has been discussed recently
and I'd like to get comments on the current version.
[1/5] - disable the OOM kernel after freezing tasks (this will be dropped if
it's verified that we can avoid the OOM killing by using
in the next patches).
[2/5] - drop memory shrinking from the suspend (to RAM) code path
[3/5] - move swsusp_shrink_memory() to snapshot.c
[4/5] - rework swsusp_shrink_memory() (to use memory allocations for applying
[5/5] - allocate image pages along with the shrinking.
Details are in the changelogs, please have a look and tell me what you think.
Everyone knows that debugging is twice as hard as writing a program
in the first place. So if you're as clever as you can be when you write it,
how will you ever debug it? --- Brian Kernighan
