mm: thp: extract split_queue_* into a struct
Patch series "Make deferred split shrinker memcg aware", v6. Currently THP deferred split shrinker is not memcg aware, this may cause premature OOM with some configuration. For example the below test would run into premature OOM easily: $ cgcreate -g memory:thp $ echo 4G > /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/thp/memory/limit_in_bytes $ cgexec -g memory:thp transhuge-stress 4000 transhuge-stress comes from kernel selftest. It is easy to hit OOM, but there are still a lot THP on the deferred split queue, memcg direct reclaim can't touch them since the deferred split shrinker is not memcg aware. Convert deferred split shrinker memcg aware by introducing per memcg deferred split queue. The THP should be on either per node or per memcg deferred split queue if it belongs to a memcg. When the page is immigrated to the other memcg, it will be immigrated to the target memcg's deferred split queue too. Reuse the second tail page's deferred_list for per memcg list since the same THP can't be on multiple deferred split queues. Make deferred split shrinker not depend on memcg kmem since it is not slab. It doesn't make sense to not shrink THP even though memcg kmem is disabled. With the above change the test demonstrated above doesn't trigger OOM even though with cgroup.memory=nokmem. This patch (of 4): Put split_queue, split_queue_lock and split_queue_len into a struct in order to reduce code duplication when we convert deferred_split to memcg aware in the later patches.
