Hi, This is the 2nd version of "hugepage migration" patchset. There were two points of issue. * Dividing hugepage migration functions from original migration code. This is to avoid complexity. In present version, some high level migration routines are defined to handle hugepage, but some low level routines (such as migrate_copy_page() etc.) are shared with original migration code in order not to increase duplication. * Locking problem between direct I/O and hugepage migration As a result of digging the race between hugepage I/O and hugepage migration, (where hugepage I/O can be seen only in direct I/O,) I noticed that without additional locking we can avoid this race condition because in direct I/O we can get whether some subpages are under I/O or not from reference count of the head page and hugepage migration safely fails if some references remain. So no data lost should occurs on the migration concurrent with direct I/O. This patchset is based on the following commit: commit 1c9bc0d7945bbbcdae99f197535588e5ad24bc1c "hugetlb: add missing unlock in avoidcopy path in hugetlb_cow()" on "hwpoison" branch in Andi's tree. http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/ak/linux-mce-2....
