PM / Hibernate: Avoid hitting OOM during preallocation of memory
There is a problem in hibernate_preallocate_memory() that it calls preallocate_image_memory() with an argument that may be greater than the total number of available non-highmem memory pages. If that's the case, the OOM condition is guaranteed to trigger, which in turn can cause significant slowdown to occur during hibernation. To avoid that, make preallocate_image_memory() adjust its argument before calling preallocate_image_pages(), so that the total number of saveable non-highem pages left is not less than the minimum size of a hibernation image. Change hibernate_preallocate_memory() to try to allocate from highmem if the number of pages allocated by preallocate_image_memory() is too low. Modify free_unnecessary_pages() to take all possible memory allocation patterns into account. Reported-by: KOSAKI Motohiro <kosaki.motohiro@jp.fujitsu.com> Signed-off-by: Rafael J.
