Could you explain more what's the difference between get_random_* and get_random_bytes_arch() and why this change is needed? And, I think that it should be another patch. > > Signed-off-by: Thomas Garnier <thgarnie@...gle.com> > --- > Based on 0e01df100b6bf22a1de61b66657502a6454153c5 > --- > include/linux/slab_def.h | 11 +++++++- > mm/slab.c | 68 ++---------------------------------------------- > mm/slab.h | 16 ++++++++++++ > mm/slab_common.c | 48 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ > 4 files changed, 76 insertions(+), 67 deletions(-) > > diff --git a/include/linux/slab_def.h b/include/linux/slab_def.h > index 8694f7a..e05a871 100644 > --- a/include/linux/slab_def.h > +++ b/include/linux/slab_def.h > @@ -3,6 +3,15 @@ > > #include <linux/reciprocal_div.h> > > +#define FREELIST_BYTE_INDEX (((PAGE_SIZE >> BITS_PER_BYTE) \ > + <= SLAB_OBJ_MIN_SIZE) ? 1 : 0) > + > +#if FREELIST_BYTE_INDEX > +typedef unsigned char freelist_idx_t; > +#else > +typedef unsigned short freelist_idx_t; > +#endif > + This is a SLAB specific index size definition and I don't want to export it to SLUB. Please use 'void *random_seq' and allocate sizeof(void *) memory for each entry. And, then do type casting when suffling in SLAB. There is some memory waste but not that much so we can tolerate it. Others look fine to me. Thanks.
