slab: propagate tunable values
SLAB allows us to tune a particular cache behavior with tunables. When creating a new memcg cache copy, we'd like to preserve any tunables the parent cache already had. This could be done by an explicit call to do_tune_cpucache() after the cache is created. But this is not very convenient now that the caches are created from common code, since this function is SLAB-specific. Another method of doing that is taking advantage of the fact that do_tune_cpucache() is always called from enable_cpucache(), which is called at cache initialization. We can just preset the values, and then things work as expected. It can also happen that a root cache has its tunables updated during normal system operation. In this case, we will propagate the change to all caches that are already active. This change will require us to move the assignment of root_cache in memcg_params a bit earlier. We need this to be already set - which memcg_kmem_register_cache will do - when we reach __kmem_cache_create() Signed-off-by: Glauber Costa <glommer@parallels.com> Cc: Christoph Lameter <cl@linux.com> Cc: David Rientjes <rientjes@google.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@redhat.com> Cc: Greg Thelen <gthelen@google.com> Cc: Johannes Weiner <hannes@cmpxchg.org> Cc: JoonSoo Kim <js1304@gmail.com> Cc: KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu@jp.fujitsu.com> Cc: Mel Gorman <mel@csn.ul.ie> Cc: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.cz> Cc: Pekka Enberg <penberg@cs.helsinki.fi> Cc: Rik van Riel <riel@redhat.com> Cc: Suleiman Souhlal <suleiman@google.com> Cc: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
