mm: fix Committed_AS underflow on large NR_CPUS environment
The Committed_AS field can underflow in certain situations: > # while true; do cat /proc/meminfo | grep _AS; sleep 1; done | uniq -c > 1 Committed_AS: 18446744073709323392 kB > 11 Committed_AS: 18446744073709455488 kB > 6 Committed_AS: 35136 kB > 5 Committed_AS: 18446744073709454400 kB > 7 Committed_AS: 35904 kB > 3 Committed_AS: 18446744073709453248 kB > 2 Committed_AS: 34752 kB > 9 Committed_AS: 18446744073709453248 kB > 8 Committed_AS: 34752 kB > 3 Committed_AS: 18446744073709320960 kB > 7 Committed_AS: 18446744073709454080 kB > 3 Committed_AS: 18446744073709320960 kB > 5 Committed_AS: 18446744073709454080 kB > 6 Committed_AS: 18446744073709320960 kB Because NR_CPUS can be greater than 1000 and meminfo_proc_show() does not check for underflow. But NR_CPUS proportional isn't good calculation. In general, possibility of lock contention is proportional to the number of online cpus, not theorical maximum cpus (NR_CPUS). The current kernel has generic percpu-counter stuff. using it is right way. it makes code simplify and percpu_counter_read_positive() don't make underflow issue.
