memory_hotplug: fix possible incorrect node_states[N_NORMAL_MEMORY]
Currently memory_hotplug only manages the node_states[N_HIGH_MEMORY], it forgets to manage node_states[N_NORMAL_MEMORY]. This may cause node_states[N_NORMAL_MEMORY] to become incorrect. Example, if a node is empty before online, and we online a memory which is in ZONE_NORMAL. And after online, node_states[N_HIGH_MEMORY] is correct, but node_states[N_NORMAL_MEMORY] is incorrect, the online code doesn't set the new online node to node_states[N_NORMAL_MEMORY]. The same thing will happen when offlining (the offline code doesn't clear the node from node_states[N_NORMAL_MEMORY] when needed). Some memory managment code depends node_states[N_NORMAL_MEMORY], so we have to fix up the node_states[N_NORMAL_MEMORY]. We add node_states_check_changes_online() and node_states_check_changes_offline() to detect whether node_states[N_HIGH_MEMORY] and node_states[N_NORMAL_MEMORY] are changed while hotpluging. Also add @status_change_nid_normal to struct memory_notify, thus the memory hotplug callbacks know whether the node_states[N_NORMAL_MEMORY] are changed. (We can add a @flags and reuse @status_change_nid instead of introducing @status_change_nid_normal, but it will add much more complexity in memory hotplug callback in every subsystem. So introducing @status_change_nid_normal is better and it doesn't change the sematics of @status_change_nid) Signed-off-by: Lai Jiangshan <laijs@cn.fujitsu.com> Cc: David Rientjes <rientjes@google.com> Cc: Minchan Kim <minchan.kim@gmail.com> Cc: KOSAKI Motohiro <kosaki.motohiro@jp.fujitsu.com> Cc: Yasuaki Ishimatsu <isimatu.yasuaki@jp.fujitsu.com> Cc: Rob Landley <rob@landley.net> Cc: Jiang Liu <jiang.liu@huawei.com> Cc: Kay Sievers <kay.sievers@vrfy.org> Cc: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de> Cc: Mel Gorman <mgorman@suse.de> Cc: Wen Congyang <wency@cn.fujitsu.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
