[PATCH v3 08/32] list: add a new LRU list type

Glauber Costa glommer at parallels.com
Mon Apr 8 14:00:35 UTC 2013


From: Dave Chinner <dchinner at redhat.com>

Several subsystems use the same construct for LRU lists - a list
head, a spin lock and and item count. They also use exactly the same
code for adding and removing items from the LRU. Create a generic
type for these LRU lists.

This is the beginning of generic, node aware LRUs for shrinkers to
work with.

[ glommer: enum defined constants for lru. Suggested by gthelen ]
